Dragon Boats, Copenhagen, Copenhagen Region, Denmark
The Dragon Boats are a real Tivoli classic, and are absolutely perfect for children and grown-ups alike.
The Dragon Boat Festival, known as Duanwu Jie in Chinese Pinyin, is marked as a traditional cultural holiday in China. It has been celebrated annually in China for more than 2,000 years, in commemoration of the death of Chinese scholar and poet Qu Yuan (340-278 BC).
Dragon Boat racing is a long standing Chinese Tradition that has developed into a fast and furious water sport around the world. In Australia, it is the fastest growing water sport with 22 people required to propel a boat from start to finish.
