Medieval Tournament and market in Visby

Medieval Tournament and market in Visby

Throughout July, and culminating in Medieval Week, they’ll be battling it out - knights on horseback and armed combatants on foot, archers and jesters. The year is 1288 and the civil war is over. King Magnus has invited everyone to a tournament to bring together the two sides of the war, town and country. The tournament is a public festival full of excitement and spirit, pomp and ceremony. Enjoy the spectacle of Sweden’s best warriors fighting it out with armour and lance, with heart and guts - all to win the favour of the ladies and the applause of the audience. Will your favourite knight rise to the challenge and make it all the way to victory and honour. For tickets, please contact Gotland Tourist Information Centre, 0498-20 17 00
