The spectacular tournaments of infantrymen and mounted knights are held at the original tournament field of the royal palace together with dance performances, flag-throwing shows, medieval games, live chess and falconry displays. Several festival programmes take place in the authentic rooms and suites, and in the wonderful renaissance garden of the palace, which helps you get a very special insight into the life of a once so splendid royal residence. At the other venues of the festival area you can listen to period music, join the medieval dance performances, cheer your favourite knight on at the historical duels, have fun by watching the puppet theatres and street comedies, or simply walk around the busy and colourful medieval market.
