Crown will be held in the beautiful castle "Hohenberg an der Eger" (see more about it at http://www.burghohenberg.de/seite2.htm, and follow the links "Ansichten" and "Fotogalerie"), near the town of Marktredwitz close to the German-Czech border. The castle dates back to the 13th century, with the better part of the still-standing structures being built in the 16th and 17th century.
Aside of a weekend in a wonderful castle, Court, Feast, and the Crown Tourney, we will also provide: A fencing tournament, free for all styles, but with an emphasis on Schläger blades, Archery, Arts & sciences competitions, plus classes.
People interested in teaching should contact the class coordinator; we'd be more than happy to complement fighting with some education. For "100 things you always wanted to know from your local Seneschal", there is also a restored torturing chamber available.
