Each year, during the Medieval Week on Gotland, a historical reenactment of King Valdemar IV of Denmark’s entrance and ransoming of Visby is staged at the historical site.
The most spectacular and the most popular event of The Medieval Week is the jousting tournament where the country’s best knights fight and compete in an amazing performance joined by squires, archers, and jesters.
The medieval marketplace is the heart of the Medieval Week festival. This is an authentic marketplace where you can see medieval leather crafting, armor, jewelry and other clothing.
During The Medieval Week Festival, you can also book authentic or modern tents. You can book a single person tent or spend the nights with others in larger military tents or medieval pavilions.
