Emder Matjestage herring festival

This is where the little fish take centre stage: the Matjestage festival celebrates the tradition of herring fishing in Emden, which dates back over 450 years. Boats from Germany and abroad moor in the inland port and Ratsdelft harbour basin, bringing with them a touch of maritime nostalgia.

Live bands and the "Matjeslauf" (herring run) provide fun entertainment.
