Impressions of Wismar's Town Festivals
Wismar’s Swedish Festival 2014
The Swedish Festival, which commemorates Wismar’s 155 years of Swedish rule, offers an eventful weekend to both visitors and residents alike. Alongside the entertainment programme in the
market square countless other events such as a motorbike rally are planned. Locations stretch from the old town centre across to the ’Alter Holzhafen’. During the festival the market square will host a fully equipped historical military camp with displays and drill exercises by the Wismar shooting clubs (Wismarer Schützenverein) in conjunction with various military history clubs and associations from Sweden. At the old harbour there are colourful amusements, fairground rides and entertaining family attractions.

Harbour Festival 2014
This year, for the 23nd time, Wismar expects thousands of visitors to descend on it for the Harbour Festival. Music stages, the big wheel, merry-go-rounds, amusement stalls and art and crafts displays all add up to a varied few days on the quayside. Traditional sailing ships like the schooner “Atlanta” and the restored Poeler Kogge (Cog) “Wissemara” offer inviting trips out into Wismar Bay. The absolute highlight of these three great days will be, without any doubt, on Saturday evening at 23.00 hrs. when the impressive firework display cascades over the bay against the magnificent backdrop of the old harbour.
