Historisches Festspiel ‘Der Meistertrunk’

Theatre in Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Takes place on Whitsuntide, with parades, dances and a medieval market. The highlight is the re-enactment of the mythical Meistertrunk story. The Meistertrunk play itself is performed three more times: once during the Reichsstadt-Festtage (early September), when the city’s history is re-enacted in the streets, and twice during the Rothenburger Herbst, an autumn celebration (October).
