Oswald von Wolkenstein riding tournament

Majestic horses, historical robes, exciting competitions – these are the ingredients for the Oswald von Wolkenstein riding tournament, which never fails to thrill its spectators, year after year. Named after the famous minnesinger, nobleman, and knight, this competition has developed over the years into one of the biggest riding spectacles in the German-speaking world.

A total of 36 teams with the best riders from all over the country will fight for fame, honour, and the coveted title on Sunday at the ring riding, the labyrinth, the obstacle course, and the goal ride in front of the magnificent backdrop of the Sciliar/Schlern. On the two days before the tournament, the people of Castelrotto/Kastelruth get into party mood – thanks to the barrel tapping, medieval market, music, and parade. Flag-wavers, jugglers, fire-eaters, knights, and market women will vie for your attention. Get ready to be impressed!
