  • Visiting the beauty salon, make jewelry, and ask a fashion oracle any questions you may have
  • Taking part in our competition for the most beautiful historically correct costume (more info to follow)
  • Shopping at the market and make or wear your own costume!

At the inn Den Bonten Os you will be able to enjoy the most delicious drinks and bites which are currently in fashion.

Always in fashion

Did you know that …

  • Even the earliest people would adorn themselves with beads, shells, and pieces of amber which they sewed on their clothing?
  • Especially in the Burgundian period (1361 – 1477), a lot of money was spent on fashion in the Lowlands? The dukes were renowned for being the most influential and lavish of the west (Western Europe).
  • People from (pre)historic times did not just wear grey and brown rags? Colorful clothing and being well dressed were of great importance and showed one’s status (and your wealth)

Due to the corona restrictions, there are a maximum number of tickets available. Only the quickest fashion kings and queens will be assured they can enter.
