THE WACKINGERs are back!

Like last year we will build up a Medieval Market for fans of mead, LARP and Vikings.

Again, the ‘Eyne People’ will stop by where you can meet knights, court ladies, badgers, jongleurs, monks and other people from all ages. Fights, tournaments and games will be offered to you every day.


But there are not only knights and princesses at Wacken: the Vikings are back! From July 30th – August 1st they stop in Schleswig; admission free for every W:O:A visitor with a valid ticket! If you ever wanted to know how to produce a hauberk, manufacture weapons or just watch real Vikings fight you shouldn’t miss this event at Wacken!


The ones who want to fight on their own or to feel like a princess extolled by brave warriors have their chance at Live Action Role Play (LARP). Or you take part in our daily Scottish Highland Games, where you can pump iron, run slalom with a tree trunk or roll barrels.


You can sign in locally for taking part if you haven’t already fallen in live with the superb mead!
