Myth & Legends

The theme for Copenhagen Sand Sculpture Festival 2013 is Myth and Legends. A long maze will bring the guests through a journey from Icelandic Legends and Greek Myths.

The sand artists

We have invited the world’s best performers within the field of sand sculpturing to join our festival and design the sculptures. The artists are capable of combining the artistic discipline together with the special technique required when sculpturing in sand. Hard physical work is involved to tamp the large quantity of sand and hereafter creating the finest details such as eyelashes.

Children and young at hearts

The journey through the fantastic sculptures will for sure inspire you to do your own sculptures with sand. Therefore we have set up a huge sandbox, where you can test yourselves within the art of sand sculpturing.

Beautiful located café

The cafe invites all of your senses for great food, drinks, a chat or maybe just a cup of coffee at the café placed next to Copenhagen harbor. You can enjoy the warmth of the sun or sit under the shadow of the Bedouin tent.

The café will be open every day from 10 – 22 hrs.

The weather

Don’t let the weather interrupt your visit, as a special technique ensures that the sculptures can stand against the wind and rain. So if it should rain just remember to bring an umbrella.
