INFORMATION ABOUT THE KNIGHT TENTS

Our medieval tents are authentically reproduced forms of historical images. These medieval tents can be individually arranged in terms of color with their decorative borders. They are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and also as self-supporting market stalls, They form an important part of every medieval market and historical scenery. In their stately rooms can be slept or chatted extensively with food and drink chivalrous.


FORM

We basically differentiate between two basic types. On the one hand, there are the models with side bars, which are built up with a central mast or with an extension with two masts. Each of these tents has its own name depending on the layout and number of side poles. In the case of the spoked wheel or ring tents, the roof structures are supported by the central mast and give the tent its shape. These rings and frames are also supported in the middle with one or, in the case of an extension, with two central masts. In addition, we have self-supporting medieval market and sales stands and extravagant, specially shaped tents, such as the early medieval grain.


THE SIZES & TYPES

The ideal size and the choice of tent type cannot be determined across the board. The question always arises, what are your needs and for what medieval occasion do you need a historical tent.

SALES & MARKET STANDS - SELF-SUPPORTING

It is not possible to tenter the historic tents on every market. Especially in the Marktgassen the knight tents, which are usually anchored in the natural ground, reach their limits. Our self-supporting market stalls offer the possibility to be set up on firm ground without elaborate bracing. We also put these tents together individually.

bazaar

Corresponds to the shape of a Landsknecht and was developed as a self-supporting market stall. The front and both side walls can be opened completely and individually. The wide canopy is sewn to the tent roof and guarantees all visitors a dry entrance even when it rains. If necessary, the canopy can be rolled up. Thanks to the stable wooden construction and the flexibility of the side walls, this tent is the right choice for every market driver.

THE SITE

As with all of our tents, a level natural floor is ideal. In order for the knight tents to be stable, the side bracing must be anchored in the ground with wooden or metal pegs. On hard courts, this is only possible with a lot of effort and is not always desirable. However, many medieval markets take place in cities and on hard courts. There are specially for market drivers the self-supporting sales and market stalls.

  • How many people would I like to place standing, sitting?
  • Is there a nature or hard court available?
  • Does the location have enough space for the anchorages?
  • For which occasion do I need the tent?

THE USE & THE AREA OF APPLICATION

Our knight tents offer the right stage wherever a medieval setting is desired. They are an important part of creating an authentic atmosphere. Only through them does the feeling of a journey into a bygone era arise. They can serve as accommodation or as a sales stand for the market vendors. It is hard to imagine a medieval market or festival without these temporary buildings and they have become an important part of the medieval scene.
