Here Plays the Music

Kind of Event

We herald August with dance and music. On special occasions in the Middle Ages - just like we do today - people liked to swing their legs to joyful melodies. But how did medieval music sound and how did you get involved? With music and dance instructions, visitors can relive a festival in the 1200s. And what kind of instruments were playing here? You are probably familiar with the bagpipe, but do you also know psaltery and shawm? Our knowledgeable live speakers will be happy to introduce you to the world of medieval musical instruments. If you want to set the tone with your own instrument, you are invited to carve tonewood.
