Kufstein Knights’ Festival - a spectacular mediaeval event at Kufstein Fortress

Damsels & knights

The sounds of the mediaeval era emanate from the fortress arena and over the fortress walls. A glance around. The Tyrolean mountains of Kufsteinerland as a natural backdrop. The scent of grilled meat and fresh bread in the air. Three knights are sitting around the campfire, their swords alongside them. A noble damsel strides past. The shouting of traders can be heard from afar, peddling their goods. Mediaeval life. The historic Kufstein Fortress. History traditionally comes to life here at Whitsun, bringing mediaeval life to the old walls. The Kufstein Knights’ Festival.

Mediaeval life

The Knights’ Festival in Kufstein is a fixed annual point in the calendar of Kufstein Fortress. Three years, dedicated to the Middle Ages. The historic side of the fortress town gradually comes to life. Knights, jugglers, mercenaries, damsels. Campfire life. Sword fights. Fire shows. Lively activity at the knights’ camp. Proud minstrels. High calibre musical groups from the Middle Ages, taking visitors back to a time gone by. Grilled corn on the cob. Dragon’s blood. Culinary treats to pamper you at the cosy beer garden or in the lively festival arena. Traders peddle their wares. From wooden swords for children to mediaeval outfits. Over 500 people fill the festival site with mediaeval life and offer insight into the past life of Kufstein Fortress.

Surrounded by the Tyrolean peaks of Kufsteinerland, the mediaeval folk weave their way through Kufstein’s town centre in a long procession. The mediaeval spectacle is paired with the modern and urban flair of the fortress town. On Saturday morning from 10:00.
