Not every Princess wants to be saved by a romantic Knight!

People are visiting the Satzvey Castle (Burg Satzvey) from all around Europe for its renowned medieval events.

As soon as I arrived I noticed that the people are not just playing a “role”… they really live the Middle Ages as a kind of second parallel life.BurgSatzvey ppl

A huge knights’ camp is built around the medieval castle, where people live like their medieval ancestors. You won’t find anything which is part of the modern way of life, not even non-medieval food.

The “Sauferei” (“Bender”) offers the best drinks for the best Knights:

At the medieval market you can find everything a medieval heart desires, while musicians, jugglers and storytellers entertain the visitors.

Proud knights on their war horses carry you back to the time of courtly love and romance.

The highlight of my visit was a great stunt-show: „Schurke oder nicht Schurke, das ist hier die Frage“ („Rogue or not rogue, this is the question“). It was a very ironic story which played with the audience’s imagination of good and evil, hero and villain and all our clichés.

Actually, at first sight it was the usual story of a Princess kidnapped by a villain. The difference here was that she enjoyed “finally” not being treated as a Princess and was flattered the presence of the rude villain. She was fed-up by the usual boring Knights (that not always are as good as they seem).

At the beginning of the show the audience booed every time the villain Xylon appeared and – after being a bit confused about the feelings of the princess – ended up booing every time the good Knight appeared.

The good and the evil fought during an impressive Knights Jousting Tournament for the hand of the Princess.

The happy-end sees the Princess in love with the villain.

My first conclusion: Not every Princess wants to be saved by a Knight.

My second conclusion: Don’t let your clichées and the outside world tell you what is good and what is evil.

Absolutely recommended!

I have always worked in the travel industry... in many roles, also as a hotelier. I've visited the world and loved it all. I can't stop.Tourism is a huge passion of mine. Passion: That's the first thing you need for success and for your travels. But not only. You also need patience and a huge amount of HUMOUR. Because trains can be late, flights can be cancelled and hotels can be overbooked... I am Italian but just started a new adventure in Germany now.Feel free to follow me in my adventures and thoughts: I would be pleased!I love to eat well, sleap well... travell! ;-)
