Schaffhouse (Switzerland)

July 10-20, 2014

From July 10 to July 20, 2014, the Company of Saynt George was in residence at the Museum of All Saints in Schaffhouse. The Great Schaffhausen Knights’ Festival was organised as a special event during the exhibition “Tournament of Knights.” Some of the world’s finest jousters competed on the historical tournament site, the “Herrenacker.”

The Company of St. George joined the festive celebrations by setting up their camp in the monastery of All Saints and providing security to the city and the people attending the jousts. We also presented the everyday life of a late medieval campsite in our mercenary camp, the Abbey’s cloister and the surrounding area.
