Sparrenberg Castle Festival Bielefeld


Jugglers, Knights, Vagabonds

Every year in July, the formidable fortress of the Sparrenberg Castle for three days becomes the historic setting of the medieval castle spectacular.

A wild bunch of jugglers, minstrels, traders and vagabonds takes visitors back in the time of the indulgence preachers and minstrels, of the black death, but also the wild joy of life. Grocers, hawkers and craftspeople characterise this medieval market with their home-made goods.
