Tillyfest In Breitenbrunn, Germany

Breitenbrunn is a municipality in Neumarkt in Upper Palatinate, Bavaria, Germany. You can witness the famous and historical event here called Tillyfest. It is held every year during the month of September. This year's celebration took place last September 11-12, 2010. Breitenbrunn is probably a friend of the gods of weather because during the celebration, the weather was friendly. There was no rain during our visit on the second day. The highlight of the celebration was the Festzug or the historical parade where you can see participants wearing colourful and attractive Medieval costumes.

Here are some of the images I took during this year's celebration.

young kids are bringing with them animals like goats during the parade.

The two days celebration was another success. Here you can witness a huge medieval army camp. Wherever you look around, tents, soldiers, both young and old are wearing beautiful Medieval costumes. Bavarian crusaders, Swedish dragon and other participants like minstrels and gypsies are enjoying this historical event.

Tillyfest has been a trademark of Breitenbrunn.
