Event Details

Children’s Feast (Kinderzeche) in Dinkelsbühl is the main festival in the German region Franconia, a ten-day celebration. The event has a long tradition and exists since 1629.

The main idea was that children celebrate the end of the school year and get the rewards for their hard work. The rewards were delicious food and drinks and the customs remain until today.

The Children’s Feast (Kinderzeche) in Dinkelsbühl is a vivid celebration with dance, historical performances, processions, and plenty of entertainment. It has a mythical character as well – according to the legend, the wagon full of children softened the heart of evil Colonel Sperreuth who decided to spare the town.

The costume play will evoke the spirits of the past and you can have fun while learning more about German tales and myths.
