Knights tournament at Kaltenberg castle (Kaltenberg)

 Fanfares!!! Ladies and gentlemen!!!

Despite the fact that this castle is located a little away from the triangle that this site is dedicated to, it is impossible not to mention it, because it is the largest Knights tournament in Europe. Therefore, here we go!

The year 1979 is coming, the celebration of the 800th anniversary of the Wittelsbach family (738 years of which they ruled Bavaria!), how to celebrate this celebration, how to surprise people? With such heavy thoughts, Prince Luitpold got to England, and got to an improvised Knights tournament (even more likely, it was a demonstration) and the idea of a holiday was born. Thus, for almost 40 years, a Knights tournament  has been held in an arena specially built near Kaltenberg castle.
