Aalborg successfully hosted Tall Ships events in 1999, 2004, 2010 and 2015. Over these four years, the city saw more than 3.2 million people taking part in the festivities.
This made it Aalborg’s largest and most popular event. The fleet will return in 2019 – this marks the city’s fifth Tall Ships Races, and its 20th anniversary. Aalborg is situated in the North of Jutland, Denmark, and is the country’s fourth-largest city. It’s undergone an extensive period of rejuvenation over the last few years – the updated waterfront areas are now the focal point of the city.
“We are proud and excited that Sail Training International has selected Aalborg as one of the host ports of the Tall Ships Races 2019… After the Tall Ships Races 2015 in Aalborg, we have had a hard time imagining how we can ever exceed the achievements of this event as, in all aspects, it surpassed our wildest expectations. However, we see no reason to rest on our laurels so planning will now start to make sure that The Tall Ships Races 2019 is an even greater success.”
Aalborg Mayor, Thomas Kastrup-Larsen
