With craftsmen, jugglers, fire blowers and stilt walkers, the lovingly decorated market with its historical booths next to the Freiheit market has been attracting visitors for more than 10 ten years.
Candlemakers, carpenters, dress makers, bone carvers and blacksmiths demonstrate their skills.
There is a show every evening on the mediaeval stage. Visitors can warm themselves at the many open fires with cups of steaming hot mead or soak in a wooden mediaeval bath tub. Traditional tastes of the past can also be savoured in the form of soups, stews and tarte flambée.
One thing you are sure to see are children with glowing eyes, round in amazement, as they listen to the fairytales of Gretel the storyteller, or take part in the kids’ jousting tournament supervised by heralds Jörg von Filz and Uli von Moll, under whose expert supervision girls and boys up to 12 years of age are turned into fully fledged knights.
Admission is free.
