Kaltenberg picture gallery

KALTENBERG PICTURE GALLERY: I’ve put this gallery together to give you a bit more insight into the Knights Tournament (Kaltenberger Ritterspiele), Europe’s biggest Middle-Ages festival.

It’s another great reason to come and explore Munich and Bavaria in July. All the Kaltenberg pictures below are used with the permission of the Ritterspiele media office. Many thanks to them for putting me on their press list and making this gallery possible. Enjoy the medieval action!
