easter attractions with a difference
30th march to 2th april 2018
A PLACE OF CREATIVITY
The Castle is dedicated to medieval traditions, life style and craftsmanship. At the Inner Bailey, craftsmen show how they worked and lived in those times. Participate in basket-weaving, forging, carving, weaving and making pottery or jewellery. We will happily convey knowledge and culture in an exciting, educational and entertaining way and invite you to contribute. In their colourful, old-style garments the players look so authentic that one might think the Middle Ages have not yet stopped.
A CULINARY EVENT
A scent of herbs, spices, exotic foods, cake and hot Met is in the air at the Castle. The Easter bakery invites to join. Medieval food is made based on traditional recipes and offered for sale to the crowd. Several stands as well as the Castle Tavern serve specialities and spoil our guests because even the old knights knew that only an abundantly set banqueting table will make a perfect party.
EVENTS FOR KIDS AND FAMILIES
This world is fascinating for kids and families. There is always much to explore and take part in. Knights’ re-enactments of medieval battles, archery, dressing up as a princess and face painting – no time for boredom. The travelling jugglers, musicians and merchants bring the spectacle to life and are full of surprises. The Castle meadows await kids with goats and sheep and the Easter rabbit will await you with some surprise or another. Our knights show you their re-enactment in battles that make the princesses adore their courage. Listen to the songs and sounds of this old but rich era – dance music, meditative music or vibrant music. The performers of Max Gaudio act out fairy tales and a comedy at their best and do not shy away from making their audience taking part in the plays. A colourful world of performers and artists.
PORCELAIN MEETS THE MIDDLE AGES
Those who seek some contemplation inbetween, can take a surprising journey through time at our Porcelain Experience. Porcelain has never before been displayed like this. It is an impressive exhibition that has been moving many people to date. Come and see the world’s tallest vase and smallest tea pot, mix the compounds that make porcelain and learn everything that is important about the material. The 20-metre-long Skywalk of Wishes fulfils your desires – ‘cos broken crockery is a sign of fortune! There is much to discover.
