Medieval Feast at Castle Tures (Taufers)
Festa Medievale a Castel Tures (Taufers)
2017 dates to be announced
Campo Tures, Bolzano (Trentino Alto-Adige region)
Campo Tures (Sand in Taufers in German) is a Tyrolean village located in Tures Valley (Tauferer Tal in German) in Trentino-Alto Adige region, about 110 km from Trento and about 70 km from Bolzano, along the border with Austria. Landmark of the territory is the impressive Taufers Castle (Burg Taufers in German) towering above the village from a dominant position flanked by the impressive panorama of the Dolomites. The castle, built in the early 13th century as dynastic seat of the Lords of Tures, is entirely furnished and very well preserved, and numbers among the greatest and most beautiful castles of the entire Tyrolean region.
And every year around the middle of May the Castle Tures with its unique appealing atmosphere becomes the magical set of the “Ritterfest”, a Medieval Reenactment offering the audience a weekend of travelling back in time to relive the Middle Ages, thanks to the absolute historical realism, the knights' encampment and tournaments, the medieval crafts market, as well as battle reenactments, street theater and performances, historical music and cuisine, belly dance shows. The special entertainment programme for children makes this event a festive happening for the whole family. And in the evening inside the castle main hall is possible to enjoy the "Dinner of the Knights”: a medieval banquet featuring historical dishes and several animations and shows.
