Gone with the wind

Autumn kite festival in Travemünde

Comings and goings in the sky on the Baltic Sea beach

The autumn kites are flying high! Every year in the first weekend of October, colourful kites in the Travemünde sky invite you for a carefree excursion to the Baltic Sea beach. Over 50 kite artists from all over Germany come to this event and put their imaginative, frequently home-made flying objects through their paces. The parade includes Chinese dragons, stunt kites, single-line kites, one-offs and funny figures from cartoons and comics. Compered air shows and individual performances give you a thrilling insight into the art of kite-flying. The event was cancelled in 2020 but this popular festival is back on the agenda for 2021. As soon as we know under what circumstances kites can be flown and above all, how you can be part of it, you will find all the latest info here.

This kite festival traditionally starts with a “freestyle day”. This means you are extremely welcome to bring your own kite for this “freestyle flight”! You can fly it in the “visitors’ field” on the beach, and the maximum length of the cord is 100 metres.

A food court and craft stands along the promenade complement the events in the sky down by the beach. Beach chairs and deckchairs invite you to relax, linger and dive into the colourful sea of kites. Good mood guaranteed!

Our tip: Don’t miss the night air show on the Saturday evening when darkness falls from 8.00 p.m. onwards!
