This weekend there is a knights tournament on the tournament field in Museum Park Archeon. Come and see who will win the exciting knights tournament!

The knights tournament was originally a combat training but is developing into a popular event: a display of wealth, wealth and chivalry that gives pleasure to many in high circles. It is a game with winners and losers.

In Archeon the tournament format 'pas d'armes' is performed. In addition, a knight or group of knights challenges anyone who passes by to a battle. The fight is conducted with lances. There is a points system. Points are scored by dealing hard hits or breaking the opponent's lance.
