Last weekend we visited the Medieval Festival at Berlin’s Domäne Dahlem – after making some quick Knights’ costumes so the boys could dress for the occasion (Edit: You can now find a tutorial for the costumes over at The Bear & The Fox)! It’s just one of the many fantastic annual festivals they host there every year. In the past, we’ve been to their historical funfair, their Christmas market and their Spring festival, and we are looking forward to the potato festival at the end of this month. I think the Medieval Festival has been my favourite event there so far. We also really lucked out with the weather – on the Saturday, when we went, we were blessed with glorious sunshine. On the Sunday, the second day of the festival, it was raining. Anyway, I just wanted to share a few photos from the day with, especially from the Knights’ tournament which was the highlight of the festival and everyone’s favourite. Even #MuseumBaby was cheering the Knights on from his pram and enthusiastically clapping at their performances!
