The impressive Reichsburg medieval fortress in Cochem has several activities over the year, one of the most popular being the Knight’s Meal.
As the name suggests, you are served medieval style food by people in costume from the period, and the entertainment also harks from that era. Of course, meat features on the menu, but vegetarians are not forgotten as a meatless version of the meal is available.
The event takes place several times a month and most are in German with English translation sheets provided. They do hold a limited number in English, the next being on Saturday 1st September 2018 and one on Friday 21st September 2018.
The meal lasts around four hours and costs €49 for adults and €24.50 for children aged 6 to 17 years. Be prepared to share a table with others – not only is that very medieval, but it is also common in parts of Germany and does make for a very social experience.
Reservation is essential as the event sells out quickly. Full details including a menu, availability chart and booking form are available here.
