Sand World Travemünde

For the fifth year, Travemünde is hosting Sand World, a festival dedicated to sand sculptures. Running from 6 July through 2 September 2007 this year’s theme is the history of mankind from the Stone Age through such technical achievements as space travel, not forgetting the beaux arts of literature and music.

75 so-called carvers (no, not skiing this time) are sculpting their oeuvres in Travemünde’s hard-packed sand renowned for its angular structure that will hold any carved shape for weeks on end. Altogether, 9000 tons of sand will be used for sculptures up to 12 m high over a surface of 10000 sqm.

And if looking is not enough: The professional sculptors offer two-hours workshops on the art of sand-carving. There are special children’s programs and guided tours and, de rigueur for any German venue, food and drink stands to make your special visit to the beach a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Read @
