Historical Wallenstein week
A journey back in time. Be amazed, sympathise and immerse yourself.
Every four years, a major event takes place in Memmingen under the motto "Wallenstein 1630 in Memmingen – Citizens of the town play out their history". More than 4,000 participants faithfully re-recreate the events of the year 1630 in Memmingen, when the Bohemian general Wallenstein was in Memmingen. A colourful programme offers varied entertainment for young and old, from adventurous equestrian games, historical church services, medieval parades and authentic camp life, as well as a craftsman's market. For that reason, a trip to Memmingen during Wallenstein week is an experience for the whole family, be it just for a day or for a whole weekend.
