Kaltenberg Knights Tournament
(Kaltenberger Ritterturnier)

Next on: July 2011

The Kaltenberg Knights' Tournament (Kaltenberger Ritterspiele) takes place each July near Munich, Germany. It's one of Europe's most famous middle-ages festivals.

KALTENBERG: You walk through the gates and see a line of knights. Looks like they’re getting ready for something, maybe a fight? Then you shuffle along to find a place for the parade: There's fire-eaters, freaks on stilts, looks like anything goes here!

You watch a medieval rock concert while swilling some mead and you’re ready for more. It’s to the arena! There’s heroes on horseback, archvilians in black and damsels in distress. The show’s about to start and your seat, my liege, awaits…

THE COMBATANTS: The knights get ready to swing their swords.

If you’ve ever wanted to live out your own Middle-Ages fantasy then the Kaltenberg Knights’ Tournament in Germany is the festival for you.
Over 120,000 people flock to Kaltenberg Castle near Munich every July and step back to a time when ankle-length dresses were edgy fashion and swords were on everybody’s hips.

A GREAT KNIGHT: I really dug the
Kaltenberg Knights Festival.

There’s more than 1000 official costumed “performers” and many visitors also choose to dress up and wander among the stands, tents and towers that comprise about 100,000 square metres of ye olde merriment.
You can find some seriously unique gifts at the Medieval Market – how would grandma like an “Elixir of Longevity” for Christmas?

What about a new coat of chain mail for cousin Bob or a bronze tiara for sister Sally? Bagpipe-bearing Corvus Corax stomps up and down on the stage, while medieval priests try to save your soul. Brooding barbarians prowl, jugglers juggle,
strong men flex their muscles and elegant ladies smile and curtsey. It all kind of forces you to join in and go with the flow. For your noble pleasure…..


The 2010 Kaltenberger Ritterturnier kicked off the first past of the "Artus" (read: King Arthur) trilogy. Click here Kaltenberger Ritterturnier to read my review and see photos from last year's event. The trilogy continues in 2011!
As dusk sets in the performance starts in the main arena and a comely couple ride out on horseback.
It’s the Prince of Wasserburg and Princess of Kaltenberg, they wave, the crowd cheers, and all is good. Then enter the dragon. The Schwarze Ritter (Black Knight) descends with his troupe of scoundrels to steal the princess.

His hyperbolical laughing fits and general campiness label him as the Diet Coke of Evil, but he’s very much the star of the show. There’s a similar storyline each year with a few twists thrown in to keep crowds coming back.

This time the Black Knight was revealed to be the princess herself, cursed
by a witch to confront her lover at the tip of a sword. If the plot seems thin, fear not. It’s really just a backdrop to the horseback stunts, the swordfights, the fireworks, and above all, the jousting.

TRAINING DAY: Noble men of the realm refine their horse-skills
before the jousting.
Take your lances!

That’s right, jousting! French stunt team Cavalcade provides what’s undoubtedly the highlight of the whole festival. The atmosphere is electric as the fully-armoured knights face each other with lances.
In a huff of hooves, they’re off!...take careful aim from their steeds…lances splinter…someone’s hit!.....he rolls off the back and bites the dust….to the victor goes the glory!

It’s very well-done and particularly entertaining when a falling knight gets his foot caught in a stirrup and is dragged along the ground for a couple of dozen meters. Afterwards, the knights retire to the “throne room” for autographs and photos.
A right royal party

The Kaltenberg festival has noble roots, having been founded by Prince Lutipold of Bavaria back in 1979. Lutipold’s the direct descendant of Ludwig II, the king famed for building Neuschwanstein Castle in Füssen, one of Germany’s most recognised symbols.Watch the action

Here's a video I made about the Knights' festival.I like to think it gives a good overview of the festival Shenanigans.

For July 2011 -

Evening shows
take place on Friday the 8th, Saturday the 9th, Friday the 15th, Friday the 22th and Saturday the 23th.
The grounds open at 4pm and the parade (Festumzug) starts at 15.30. The arena show goes from 8pm to 10pm. The official program ends at midnight, but you can party on with the Barbarians’ Club if you want to stay longer.

Daytime shows are on Sunday the 10th, Saturday the 16th, Sunday the 17th and Sunday the 24th.
Grounds open at 11am and the parade starts at 1pm. The arena show goes from 3.30pm to 5.30pm. The official program ends at 7.30pm.
A "Childrens' Knights' Tournament" - Kinderritterturnier - takes place in the arena just after each of the daytime performances.

On Thursday the 21th is the hugely popular “Gauklernacht” - Jesters’ Night which features an army of 1000+ performers as colourful as they are flexible. It goes from 6pm to 2am. Check out some pics here.
The usual arena show doesn’t take place but there’s so much else going on you won’t even notice. Organisers call this night a “Symphony of Light and Fire”. Cool!


*Tickets including admission and a seat for the arena show cost between €27.60 and €43, depending on how close to the action you are.
*Tickets for the roofed royal Lodge cost €55.10.
*If you can’t get a seat for the arena show, don’t worry! Admission to the grounds costs €19.90, where you can see the market, the parade, the concerts, everything really! And you can stand at the back of the grandstands and watch the arena show anyway.
*Jesters’ Night tickets cost €25.40.
*Kids under 6 years get in free, but there’s no guarantee of a seat for the arena show. Tickets for kids 6 to 15 are €5 less than the adult tickets, except for the Lodge where they pay full-price.
It’s an extra €5 cheaper for these kids on Sunday the 5th.
*There’s also a 10 percent advanced booking fee and €1.20 service charge per ticket.
*You can book tickets online with the "Katenberger Ticket Machine" here. Keep in mind it's in German, but it's not so difficult to navigate - you can even pick your exact seats for the arena show.

Directions: If you’re coming by public transport take an S-Bahn train (the number S4) to Geltendorf and then get a special connecting bus to the Kaltenberg Knights Festival.
To check connections visit the Deutsche Bahn site here.
If you're comming from Munich's main station enter Muenchen Hbf into the first line and Geltendorf into the second line. Give yourself at least an hour to get there from Munich.

Other Info:
*The tournament takes place regardless of rain, hail or surprise dragon attack but you’re asked not to use umbrellas in the arena because they annoy the people sitting behind you.
*Dogs aren’t allowed, they don't get along with the goblins.
*Prams and baby carriages are allowed in the grounds but have to be left outside the arena, at the first-aid station.
