10th Wismar Herring Festival

Herring was of great economic importance back in the 11th century, and still is today. The annual Wismar Herring Festival is held in celebration of this bounty of the sea. Hosted by the Hanseatic Chefs Clubs from Wismar Bay, this tenth edition of the festival on the Baltic Sea runs until 1 April 2012. Visitors can look forward to delicious dishes centred around the succulent herring in and around the old quarter of Wismar.
