Medieval Christmas Market

Look forward to a colourful market with traders from all over the world, food and drink, game stalls and jugglers. An event for cosiness and for slowing down.

Friday to Sunday - 25 to 27 November 2022

Fun and games for young and old await you with showmen and storytellers. Try your hand at axe throwing and archery or watch the falconer and his fascinating birds of prey.

By candlelight and a crackling fire, all kinds of historical items will be on sale. Culinary delights from the grill and fire as well as from the pot and oven await you. Warm met and mulled wine made to our own recipe are also on offer.

Experience a place for cosiness and slowing down in the run-up to Christmas. Immerse yourself in a time long gone but not forgotten.
