Sportplatz 1, D-79576 Weil am Rhein, Germany http://maps.google.ch/maps?hl=en&tab=wl

Visit a Medieval Festival, all day on Saturday. As the entrance fees are higher on Saturday, I think there will be more events then.

It is just across the border from Basel Badische Bahnhof. You could park at the Basel Langen Erlen Zoo and walk across the border.
The event is near the Laguna swimming pool and the ice skating hall,

Car park in Switzerland: http://map.search.ch/d/duwztixzj.en.html

Proposed meetup time & place is inside the festival grounds on Saturday, time: 14:15 at Kampfplatzbühne, Bühne Nr. 4. ( Fighting Stage 4)

Due to heavy holiday traffic at the Weil am Rhein autobahn border crossing, it is strongly recommended that you use the small roads
and other border crossings on any Saturday in the summer!

If you wish, you may dress up as a knight with a suitably attired Wench.

Re: Medieval Festival near Basel, Saturday afternoon

Cheers for the head ups.
Somehow I missed the MAY part, and walked to Weil am Rhein today to see the medieval festival and didn't realize until we were in the park that it is a month from now.
But all good that ends well, somehow we ended up in a Turkish community party with BBQ, music and dancing. And warm welcomes from the Turkish ones (guess we must have looked really lost).

Re: Medieval Festival near Basel, Saturday afternoon

I guess this deserves a friendly reminder.
I've seen some photos already and this looks awesome!

I had to leave at 15:30, but here are some photos I took earlier,

Re: Medieval Festival near Basel, Saturday afternoon

Thanks for organizing Ittigen, I can speak for the both of us and say we had the most excellent time!! I got so carried away that I even bought my own drinking horn!
Excellent place for photos too, as it attracted all sort of ... uhm... special people who seam to take this festival quite seriously
Pity we had to go around 5, I'm sure this was awesome in the evening. But we're already looking forward to next year!











and few more...
