Denmark Kite Festival 2017

64

Thousands of people have descended on the Danish island of Fanoe for Europe’s largest kite festival.

5,000 kite makers from Norway, Germany, Japan and the US demonstrate their skills.

The festival was founded by Wolfgang Schimmelpfenning who organised a kite fliers weekend with friends.

Since then, it has evolved into an international, though non-commercial, grassroots event.
