While roaming the city of Nuremberg, Germany, we stumbled upon three people dressed up in medieval clothing. When we asked if we could take a photo of them and asked why they were dressed that way, they told us that they were headed to the Medieval festival by the Nuremberg castle. Since we didn’t have a schedule for that day, we headed off to check out the festival.
It was really hard to find the entrance to the fest and had to ask around. When we came upon the entrance point, we realized that it was €6 per person just for admission. We thought it was pricey, but thought what other times would I have to opportunity to check out an authentic medieval festival, right at the castle? So we decided to go in.
