Medieval season gets under way

Fans of all things medieval will be in their element on 21 and 22 April 2012, when this year's Medieval Festival Tour gets under way in the beautiful Lower Rhine region. The first stop is Weeze Airport, where a medieval-themed world for the whole family has been created, featuring a crew of more than 1,000 people and a fantastic programme of entertainment including a craft market, fire displays and demonstrations.

Other stops on the 2012 tour include Dresden, Dortmund, Karlsruhe, Cologne and Hamburg.
