The Historical Old Town Festival
The history of Pappenheim dates back over 1.200 years and it ist both - privilege and historic responsibility.
It was the counts of Pappenheim who put the crown on the heads of the German and European kings and emperors, which even Goethe descriped in his poetic language. And it was the people of Pappenheim who not only benefits from their politics but sometimes also terribly suffered under the consequences of their decisions.
For one weekend the historical old town festival tries to illuminate the rich historical past by turning the clock back 1000 years. It takes you back in the Middle Ages with its traditional costumes, a medieval market, jugglers, dancers and many other attractions.
