Ritterspiele 2021 in Schlunders

Knights’ Games from 20 to 22 August 2021

Schluderns once again offers the ideal backdrop for the South Tyrolean Knights’ Games. In the historical ambience of Churburg Castle, the Lichtenberg castle ruins, Fürstenburg Castle and Marienberg Monastery, spectacular show fights will keep the spectators in suspense from 20 to 22 August 2021.

Proud knights take aim at their opponents. They dash into battle on their dapper horses, lances bursting, armour clanking, the noble lords crowning their victor. Roman chariots race each other, the crowd cheered and marvelled at all kinds of exotic and curious things.

The highlights of the 2021 Knight’s Games

The tournament

Trilogy Part 3: “Finale in the Battle for the Churburg”.
Spectacular jousting and stunt scenes captivate every visitor. The jousting tournament in the arena is the highlight of the event.


Nowhere does the family experience more fun and entertainment than here: Riding camels & donkeys, archery, petting zoo, children’s entertainment, carousels, hay jumping …
All attractions on the grounds are free of charge!


The year is anno domini 285 – all of Raetia is occupied by the Romans. The Roman unit at Ganglegg, near the present-day village of Schluderns, watches over the key with the lion’s head. Roman quadrigas race through the track in the chariot race to win the prized trophy.


May 1499 – The Bündner strike back and invade the Vinschgau! The Tyrolean battle of misfortune takes its inglorious course. The Battle of Calven – Emperor Maximilian’s great defeat claims the death of Fontana.

The festival beer from the special FORST brewery is served freshly tapped in the coveted event mugs.
