In the Castle Park, in the shelter of the mighty walls of the Ljubljana Castle, members of the Otočec Knights’ Society will erect a tent every summer Sunday in June, July and August, with a display of knights’ weapons and equipment. Visitors to this medieval corner will have an opportunity to try their hand at sword fighting and other medieval skills, and to have their photograph taken on the ruler’s throne, in knights’ equipment or in stocks. The youngest visitors can also take part in a hunt for coins (at 11.00 am and 4.00 pm), with prizes for the most successful hunters.

For a small additional fee, visitors can also try their hand at archery or make a replica of the Bernhard Spanheim coin.

The camp will be cancelled in the case of bad weather.

We recommend using the funicular to visit the medieval camp.
