Medieval festival at Cochem castle
Craftsmen, jugglers and mercenaries invite you to all kinds of amusement and pageant
This year once again visitors to our proud fortification will be greeted by players and all sorts of other folks in a medieval ambience. Within the dreamlike backdrop of the old castle, rustic stalls and action stages are built up to create a medieval market scene, where all sorts of folks and jugglers will offer visitors interesting entertainment and an exciting programme with amusement, hearty food and drink.
Various contemporary craftsmen will demonstrate their ancient crafts. Amongst others; potters, an armourer and an authentic chain mail maker will perform their skills. Beer, wine and delicious food from the grill will satisfy the physical well-being.
Medieval juggler groups will entertain with an exciting programme of juggling, fire artistry, and interactive games whilst musicians play their songs on old instruments such as bagpipes, davul skin drums and shawm.
The sword fighting and medieval battle show group „Fictum“ will re-enact breathtaking battles on the stage using weapons and armour from the middle ages.
All in all an enthralling programme, which will transport visitors several hundred years back into the past within the castle walls on this weekend. And these old walls are worth a visit any time!
