Knights in shining armour will gather at this year’s Knights Festival on Kufstein Fortress at Whitsun and entertain young and old visitors in the true style of the Middle Ages.
Let yourself be transported back to Medieval times at Whitsun 2020 for four fantastic fun-filled days, full of bone-crunching combat knights, music and scrumptious food. Join the Medieval townsfolk, musicians and nobles as there is no better way to learn about history and have fun at the same time. Now in its twelfth year, the Knights Festival at Kufstein Fortress offers a unique opportunity to see and experience the Medieval world coming to life, complete with the sights, sounds and atmosphere of the period. Witness knights battling it out in spectacular jousting tournaments as you wander through the Medieval village with tented encampment. Mystics, jugglers, and silly jesters in historic costumes will amaze and enthrall the visitors, along with fire eating and musicians weaving their musical, magical way through the merry crowds.
With stalls spread throughout the fortress grounds in decorated marquees and historical tents, the Medieval Crafts Market provides a chance to see and buy unique and handcrafted wares, fine jewelry, reconstructed and handmade clothing. The program of entertainment for budding knights and princesses will be bursting at the seams on the exhilarating Medieval Adventure Playground, where swords are wielded, archery skills tested and iron rings are thrown.
