Kaltenberg Knights' Tournament. 6 days in Bavaria. Places to visit and things to do.

Kaltenberg Knights' Tournament is a Bavarian festival that takes place in July every year in the grounds of Kaltenberg Castle, an hours drive west of Munich.

There are more than 1,000 artists, including knights, jesters, musicians, acrobats and performers whisking you away into the fantasy world of the Middle Ages.

There are more than 100 market stalls and live workshops presenting medieval crafts and traditional goods. Visitors can watch live demonstrations and the camps give an insight into life in the Middle Ages.

There is an array of bars and food outlets.

Entertainers move between the guests and once a day the artists and historical groups take part in a ceremonial parade through the castle grounds.

I visited with my friends who I was staying with, it was a great event for people of all ages, with or without children. It's somewhere I visit again and would happily roam around for the day on my own.
