A spring supper, fairytale feast, performers’ night or mediaeval banquet: at our four-course dinner theatre nights you benefit from two modes of entertainment: the culinary and the cultural. Our master cook and various performers provide sustenance for both your stomach and your ears according to age-old traditions, each of which tells its own tale of the days of noble knights and fine ladies. While one blows his horn and plucks his strings, the other wields his pots and ladles, eliciting hymns of praise from your taste buds.
Be led into dinner by the lord of the castle himself, dine in mediaeval style, delight in courtly music, dainty dances and incredible tales of yore and storm the ancient walls of the Ehrenburg on a night-time tour of the castle by torchlight.
Step back into a dream of days long since past, hear the sound of horse hooves and clashing swords echoing off the walls and enjoy a night of true mediaeval chivalry. Come and join our mediaeval feast – and discover how the knights of yore wined, dined and were entertained in style.
AD 1352: the lord of the castle, Konrad of Ehrenberg, has invited a troop of travelling artistes to his stronghold to lift the spirits of his subjects with music and masques following a long period of depravation. However, the colourful entertainment is brought to an abrupt end when one of the mimes literally drops down dead in his death scene. And the murders don’t stop there. Who’s behind it all? What’s real and what’s not? And how did old Elsbeth know exactly what was going to happen? Once again Franciscan friar Georg of Kandel investigates a case which marries faith and superstition, the real and the unreal.
