Mittelalterliches Burggrabenfest in Nürnberg

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.

0-3 years old are free
4-12 years old €3
13-100 years old €6
Family (2 adults, 2 child) €15

This year was the 10th year of the festival, taking place from Sept 12th-14th. The festival is separated into 3 sections;

Kids’ world: lots of games and shows to keep the little ones entertained
Magic world: performances such as fire circus, musical entertainment and flags
Arena: battle performances, bird shows

Da Claudio in Nuremberg, Germany

Hauptmarkt 16, 90403 Nuremberg, Bavaria, Germany

Situated in the busy Hauptmarkt where the famous Christmas Market is held each year, the sat on the second floor of the Da Claudio restaurant, sitting by the window where we could look out into the square. The first floor was a bit more fancy, later learning that it was an Italian fine dining restaurant. It was full and very busy, so we were glad we had the half full upstairs with the peace and quiet.

We had a latte and piece of cake. Since Sheepie spoke German with the servers, I am not sure how well their English would be. I’m guessing that since it was by a heavy touristy attraction area that they would be able to understand the basics.

As with most coffee/dessert related things in Germany, they are really good! I wasn’t paying attention with the prices so can’t recall the cost. The place is clean, bright atmosphere with comfortable seating.
