fencing and stories

Fencing and tales is a experiance beyond the ordinary. You will see the old royal castle and listen to vivid tales about Koldinghus' dramatic history. You will see dexterous nobles duel on glory and experience the elegant art of the past on your own body when the talented fighters of the castles take you on a live journey back in time where honor was more important than life.

Fencing and tales is a entertaining and different experience, in which you grapple with the 17th and 18th century elegant art of fencing. ​

Here it is not physical strength, but dexterity, focus and perhaps a little "stratagem" that decides the duel.

​The castle's fencers will safely lead you through some fun and challenging exercises where everyone can participate. You will end up with an exciting and fun fencing competition where the winner is celebrated at a royal ceremony. We promise you lots of good laughs.

Duration: 2 hours.

As an example, if you want to experience more, we also offer dressing up in some beautifull renaissance costumes. You can also combine the fencing with a live theme tour at the castle, and / or complete the activities with a visit to Madkælderen.

The fenceres and additional actors are from SkuespilsKompagniet TheArmoury
