What’s on in Sonderborg July 2012?

Elton John by Augustenborg Castle

July 4th Sir Elton gives a concert in the scenic park by Augustenborg Castle. There are still tickets available.

Tilting at the ring

Tilting-at-the-Ring tournaments and festivals are a longstanding tradition in Southern Jutland and during the summer every town has its own tournament. Festivities last throughout the weekends, when local riders compete during the day and party in the evening in the beer tents.

We wrote about the story of the 2012 poster in our last post.
