The yearly event “Horizontoer” (Horizon tour) will take place from August 4th until August 14th. Horizontoer is a floating music and theatre festival. You travel with six traditional sailing freighters from island to island. Music and theatre groups play on every island as well as on board.

During this 28th edition of the festival, the Wadden Agenda organises a bloggers´ event featuring a beautiful and unique UNESCO World Heritage site: the Wadden Sea.
