Medieval Games

 On the 25th and 26th of August the old town of Fuessen became the stage of Medieval Games
 The "Hohes Schloss" in Fuessen was the former summer residence of the prince bishop of Augsburg and one of Bavaria's largest and best preserved late Gothic castle complexes
  The famous castles of Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau are located near the town
 The medieval festival reminds of the times when the Bishops ruled the town
 People dressed in medieval clothes come from far away to exhibit at the medieval market ....
 ... and live in a medieval camp
 Most of the tourists, however, come for the follies of the mad Bavarian king Ludwig II from places as far away as China and Japan
