Medieval Festival in a real Medieval Village
- July 29, 2015
- The Glambassador
As a frequent attendee of Renaissance Faires, Celtic Flings and Scottish Highland Games in the States, I was elated to find that a variation of these events occur in Germany. Of course they typically happen in actual Castles or Medieval Villages, which ups the ante quite a bit in my book.
The Richard the Lionhearted Festival in Annweiler am Trifels commemorates the English king, Richard the Lionheart, being taken prisoner at Trifels Castle in Annweiler from 1193 to 1194. German Emperor Heinrich VI captured him on his way back from the Holy Land. Richard was obliged to stay in prison until the English paid an incredibly high ransom.
There was a medieval marketplace, sword fighting, falconry, fantastic food all with this beautiful medieval village as the backdrop.
