Multisensory workshop "Defending a castle"

 - Haut-Koenigsbourg castle, Alsace, France

Tour description

Visitors gain an initiation in the "art of war" in the Middle Ages, in the authentic, strategic environments of the armoury and artillery bastion. They discover different types of weapons - such as fire arms, and bladed weapons for both cutting and thrusting - and understand how they were used. The handling of authentic objects, swords, coats of mail and helmets leads pupils to a better knowledge of combat methods. An explanation of a knight's education and his life rules help them understand what his everyday life was like.

Hours of departure are defined during the reservation.
