In the Wadden Sea we have 72,000 tonnes waiting to be eaten. And in the Limfjord there is the original Danish oyster, which by top chefs is already among the world's best. Despite Denmark literally wading in oysters, the Danes do not eat many of them. But a new, large-scale festival, Denmark's Oyster Festival will open our eyes to this amazing raw material. The festival will offer activities for children and adults along the entire eastern coast, all of which will bridge the climate-friendly, protein-rich and tasty oysters and the Danes' dinner tables.


The renowned competition 'Oyster Chef of the Year' is held on Rømø, which is located in the middle of the Wadden Sea National Park and is surrounded by foamy seas and oysters with great taste. During the competition you can taste top chef's interpretations of oysters, get tips for easy preparation, send the children in the oyster kitchen and get on the oyster and herb safari. “I am proud to welcome the festival's central event, Oyster Chef of the Year, to Rømø. I hope that the outside world will really catch the eye of the Wadden Sea sisters and make the Wadden Sea an international gastronomic tourist destination ”, says Henrik Frandsen, Mayor of Tønder Municipality.
