The most renowned warriors in the land are required to assemble under the dragon’s banner. Let the courtly tournament begin!
In tournament groups or teams happy guests are invited to ‘storm’ the ancient walls of the Ehrenburg. Whether you try your hand at some traditional archery with mediaeval hunting bows or take part in an exciting castle rally, we guarantee you plenty of fun and an experience you won’t forget in a hurry!
Who hasn’t dreamt of being Robin Hood at one time or another and letting the arrow fly at speed from his or her bow? Of fighting for fame and honour – and the favours of the ladies – like a knight of the Round Table? Or of personally hunting down the game for the evening feast?
Even though our wild boar eager hunters can practice throwing their spears at is only made of straw, our master cook has plenty to offer hungry competitors at the buffet laid out under the courtyard arcades. And with a drink to the successful tournament party and another to your very special day at the Ehrenburg your journey back in time comes to a happy end.
