In 2023 we want to revive the Thuringia Championship in historical medieval battle. After a successful, small tournament in 2022, we will stay on the “Ochsenwiese” and build there a separate area for the tournament. It will again be an important part of our event “Ritter Recken Heldenspiele”.
The venue (the Ochsenwiese) can be accessed via the following street:
The assembling of the tents will take place on Friday. Until Saturday, 10:00 a.m., all cars must be driven off the site.
Parking spaces can be found at the companies “Jahn GmbH” and “EJOT GmbH” as well as at the old event area (city park) at the Burgstallstraße. Since we only have a limited amount of parking spaces near the event, the vehicles will then have to be distributed to the other parking spaces. Exact information about the parking situation will be available on site. The exact addresses can be found here:
Im Grund 5
Im Grund 2
Parking lot at the city park
Behind the sawmill (dealer preferred)
As usual, there will be the possibility to camp at our event. The camp will be closer to the arena than in previous years. Please keep in mind that camps near the arena must remain set up until Sunday 18:00 (end of the event). Driving on the site will not be possible during market hours.
Camping in modern, non-historic tents is possible by arrangement. However, we cannot guarantee a location close to the arena. Likewise, we can only allow a limited number of modern tents.
Those who need accommodation close by should use common booking portals. Please note that the local capacities are booked out quickly, and you may have to accept a short drive. Here you can find apartments and hotels in and around Tambach-Dietharz:
At our market there will be a beverage supply for you with draft soda and beer. In addition, there will be a drinking water line for your free use. Please think of canisters or empty bottles to fill them before the tournament. We will only provide the drinking water line, as it can be found near the arena.
On Saturday night we will have a BBQ for all participants of the tournament, the support and marshals.
Please note the entry fee of 25 Euro per team! The payment is due on site.
There will be a toilet container on the site, which will be open during market hours. In addition, there will be toilets available, which can also be used at night. We will also organize showers for you. We will let you know in which form and where they are.
