Kaltenberg Knights´ Tournament 2011

The Kaltenberg Knights´ Tournament is the largest tournament of modern times.  Approx. 120,000 visitors come to Kaltenberg Castle each July, to step back into the Middle Ages, to see the Great Tournament, to stroll across the largest medieval market and to see an 8 hour programme set on seven stages. Join us in July 2010! Become part of the big show - watch our 5 min. video:

The increasing success of each year's tournament, has inspired the creators of the Kaltenberg Knights´ medieval barber shopTournament to produce an even more spectacular show than before. A show which will probably be performed in front of more than 10,000 spectators!

A medieval show – and what a show it will be! A show with knights, incredibly beautiful horses and outstanding riders and with breathtaking stunts performed by horse/rider teams.

This year, they will stage part II of 'King Arthur's Trilogy: Voyage to the Orient'. Once again scripted by the multi-talented Mario Luraschi – scriptwriter, stunt co-ordinator and director.

But this event isn't just about knights jousting! The medieval market and additional events on seven different stages offer new attractions in 2010 too!

Once again, traders will be offering their medieval wares on approx. 100 stands covering an area of more than 100,000 square meters. Of course, I will personally ensure – as I have done each year - that you, our esteemed guests, receive only high quality products at reasonable prices.

Well over 1,000 artists will be involved in the happenings at Kaltenberg Castle: in streets and squares and on stage. You will meet old acquaintances (many of whom I now consider to be old friends), and be grand entrancesurprised by attractions you haven´t seen here before: altogether quite an exciting mixture.

Kaltenberg wouldn´t rise to its name if it didn't serve its famous King Ludwig Dunkel(beer) and excellent food. Once again, it will be great value for money. Kaltenberg has always been mapped out as an event for the whole family and so it shall remain. The arena show and the above mentioned additional programmes are equally suitable and exciting for children, teenagers and adults.

Finally, I would like to point out, that due to its overwhelming success over the past three years, the Kaltenberg Jesters´ Night will take place this year too.

Jester's Night

The Jester's Night takes place on Thursday, July 21. It starts at 6:00 p.m. and officially ends at 2:00 a.m., however, many a bonfire is burning all night long. Musical and theatrical acts fill the night, so that you will run into jugglers, fire-eaters, fools, quacks, and marketeers everywhere.

Musical Final

Two top class concert days end the Festival Weeks in Kaltenberg. 'Alpenrocker' Hubert von Goisern has invited many well-known musicians to join him on stage, and he also welcomes some bands from less-known parts of Europe, bands which show von Goisern's lucky hand in recognizing talents which maybe a bit off mainstream. So, do not miss two days full of music on July 30. and 31.!
