When darkness falls, the day ends traditionally with spectacular torchlight in Kastellsundet. Watch the rowing boats slide across the water with lit torches at the quay from about 21.15. Or do as you used to - enjoy the spectacle together with a good dinner at one of the restaurants overlooking the strait:
