Medieval Castle Moat Festival (Mittelalterliches Burggrabenfest)

September 4-6, 2020

Schloss Thurn presents the medieval festival for the whole family! Sword fights, fire-breathers, traders and entertainers with their racket and row will carry you off to a mystical world of the past.

Visitors can look forward to a "medieval festival for the whole family" set in a fantastic backdrop at the foot of Nuremberg's Imperial Castle. Boisterous sword-fighting competitions, impressive displays of falconry, hilarious street performers and a medieval play place for children are all on offer. Highlights are the fire-breathers of "Firefly", who, at dusk, entertain on a 6.5 meter-high trapeze. Enjoy the medieval party atmosphere also thanks to the bands "Bene Vobis" and "Schattenschweif"!
