Nibelungen War XIII

Jul 13-17, 2011, Ortenberg, Germany


“Uns ist in alten Mæren wunders vil geseit
von Helden lobebæren, von grôzer arebeit,
von freuden, hôchgezîten, von weinen und von klagen,
von küener recken strîten muget ír nu wunder hœren sagen“.

With those words starts the “Nibelungenlied” - probably the most famous epic poem of medieval Germany. In memory of this great story the Shire of Meadowmarsh invites you to the twelfth Nibelungen war.
Take part in contests both martial and gentle and prove that the times of heroic deeds and extraordinary talents are not history but that the legend still goes on!
Expect heavy combat, fencing, archery, dancing, classes, and more.
