|The River Boat Jazz Festival is held every year in the beautiful town of Silkeborg in the middle of Jutland, Denmark.
It was an idea from the sixties by the local Jazz Club in Silkeborg which today has developed to one of the most popular music festivals in Denmark.
All kinds of Jazz is played in the concert halls, tents, in the streets, the church and perhaps most important on the old steam boats sailing on the lakes at Silkeborg.
New Orleans, Dixieland, swing, street parade, gospel, big band, jam session.
Jazz bands from all the world come to play at the festival.
The boat trips are very popular and you have to get your tickets in good time to be able to participate on one of them.
The steam damper Hjejlen in the panorama is the oldest steam damper in the world sailing with the original steam engine.
