THIS IS JUST AN ACTIVITY RECOMMENDATION!

Dear all,

If you still don't have plans for your weekend, I would like to inspire you with an idea....
How about the Knight Tournament at the Castle Ruins in Königstein/ Taunus?
It is not far away from Frankfurt and you can reach the destination not only by car but also with public transport.

At the Königstein Knights' Tournament at the Königstein castle ruins, you can experience the Middle Ages up close at the medieval market with weaponsmiths, leatherworkers, soapmakers and more, or as a spectator at the knightly battle for glory and honor.

Unfortunately I am off at the time of this event so I will not be able to join you. Still, I think it is important to know what is going on in the neigbourhood and have the chance to pick from our options.

Have a nice weekend!
