Sword and Cape Day

Rakvere linnus - rüütlid

Every adventurous soul and history enthusiast is welcome to our Sword and Cape Day. You’ll have a chance to see every sword in the castle, partake in jousting, try out our cabbage contest, smash your enemy’s shield in a tilting match, see fencing show in which old and modern fencing techniques are displayed, listen to an intelligent talk on the Order’s history, and memorise facts about the history of the sword. The day will end with a folk party with games and dancing. 

There is a spitted ox roasting on fire in front of the tavern, the air is filled with aromas and spices, beer and wine flow, and fascinating dishes made according to medieval recipes wait for you in Schenkenberg Tavern.
