Did you know that the first of the World Port Days took place as early as 1935? In those days it was still a one-day event, intended to promote the port. The target group was not the public at large, but rather a select group of prominent business relations from home and abroad. The current event, which is aimed more at the general public, came into being in September 1978, and these days everybody can enjoy the spectacular demonstrations on the quays and in the water. Visitors can view vessels and participate in interesting trips exploring the port area.
