"Blue Ribbon" of the Weser

Every two years more than 3.000 canoeists, oarsmen and swimmers from all over Germany and other countries come to the Weser city. The reason: The "blue ribbon" of the Weser, a water sports event, which is organized by the "Ring der Wassersportvereine e.V.". But it's even more than just that. Of course there are competitions. Yet, beyond that a cultural event program in the special atmosphere of the Weser offers a unique experience for sportsmen and visitors equally. The parkways at the Weser, the former fortress glacis, are decorated with innumerable multicolored fairy lights.
