Sandskulpturfestival i Søndervig

The 2016 edition of Søndervig Sand Sculpture festival offers an experience out of the ordinary. Audiences are invited on an African safari where the breath taking landscapes and the wild animals of the African savannah are experienced in its right element. 12.000 tonnes of sand are sculpted into an impressive insight into the African wildlife, where predators as the hungry Kenyan lions and the lurking leopards of Namibia are brought to live along with the bombastic elephant herds of Botswana. Step into the fascinating landscape and let your thoughts and fantasy start wandering. But be careful – the wild animals are lurking everywhere.

38 of the most acknowledged sand sculptures are put on the task of refl ecting the African continent. Single sand sculptures will accompany the 200-meter-long and 7-meter-tall sculpture wall, which in recent years has been the main attraction of the festival. In 2015 more than 120.000 guests from both Denmark and abroad visited the 13th edition of the festival, and with the broad appeal of the theme the foundation for an outstanding family outing has been made.
