The European Medieval Festival
Thank you for a fantastic festival this year.
The torches have been put out and merchants, craftsmen, knights, musicians and jesters have left the market place. The 20th instalment of the annual European Medieval Festival invited you on a wondrous journey more than 500 years back through the ages and approximately 55.000 stepped out of the modern city and straight into the middle ages when Horsens opened its gates to a medieval festival like no other in the fantastic setting of the former state prison, FÆNGSLET.
This year we also invited you on a journey to J.R.R Tolkien’s fantastic Universe. You can still visit the exhibition Tolkien’s universe – an echo of medieval times. It is open until October 19, 2014.
FÆNGSLET will dress in its medieval clothes next year on August 28 and 29, 2015. We look forward to welcoming all good people when we open the doors to another great festival for the 21st time.
The festival is open to the public on Friday 16:00-23:00 and on Saturday 10:00-23:00.
Entrance to the festival area is FREE of charge.
