OPENING EVENT OF THE 51st LUCKY CITIES MATJESWOCHEN from 14 June to 17 June 2018 . Glückstadt's former mayor Manfred Bruhn developed the idea to market the "Silver of the Sea" in tourist terms. In 1968, thanks to his initiative, the first Glückstädter Matjeswochen were celebrated. In 1976, Fischmeister Helmut Sievers took over the production and marketing of the Glückstädter specialty after the cessation of herring fishing in Glückstadt. Every year in the middle of June on the opening day, thousands of visitors and journalists await eagerly for the mayor to bite into the new matjes for a taste test. The "Matjesanbiss" will be used to celebrate the new matrying season. Afterwards, there will be a four-day festival in the city center with a flea market and children's mile, arts and crafts, maritime art and culture, open-ship and matejes in all its diversity. Numerous live bands provide for mood.
