camp life on the anger of munnerstadt

Visitors not only from the city, but from as far afield as bad neustadt, bad kissingen and schweinfurt came to the medieval camp on the munnerstadter anger, where landsknechte, marketenderinnen and craftsmen bustled about. The smell of peasant soup floated over the square, while brave lansquenets practiced swordplay and medieval craftsmen went about their work.

The three hans-sachs games were particularly popular with the crowd, which grew increasingly large as the afternoon progressed. First of all, dorothea hanshans was convincing as the bossy wife, rainer kirch as the downtrodden husband and baldur kolb as his advisor. Even magic herbs and a golden ring with an expensive gemstone failed to have the desired effect. Only pebbles from the lauer as projectiles finally brought about the taming and submission of the unruly ones.

Also the two pieces "the dead man" with dorothea hanshans, anneliese and eugen albert and franz wust and "das kalberbruten with claudia skuppin, rudi rippstein and andreas tragner went down very well with the audience, as the scene applause and the applause proved. The hans-sachs-plays can now be booked for example for travel groups, birthdays or other events. The heir to the home play community.

The local player claudia skuppin had intensively studied the history of the weaver’s craft, which played a rough role in munnerstadt in the early centuries. She took this as a model for a cheerful weaver dance, which should remind of the movement of the weaver shuttles in handlooms. She thus met the taste of the spectators. The dancers got a lot of applause.

Several craftsmen also took the visitors back to the middle ages. Among them was stefan fischer from the "barber store" at the upper gate. He not only cut the hair of the visitors, he also had some tools for pulling teeth. In the middle ages, barbers were also dentists and drew teeth, as he explained. It was not until 1678 that the two professions parted ways. "I have always been interested in the history of this craft and collected old tools" he says. This afternoon, however, he refrained from pulling teeth, so as not to spoil the mood.

A blacksmith from kleinwenkheim also demonstrated his craft. When he forged the glowing iron, the sparks flew, and the blows on the metal echoed over the whole square. He was present for the first time at the landsknechtslager. Right next to it a farber from niederlauer, who is already an old acquaintance, had settled down. Here was shown how the wool was spun in earlier centuries and then dyed with all possible colors. Visitors were also allowed to try their hand at felting wool here. Especially young ladies had their fun with it.

The country servants in their medieval uniforms and the market women in their medieval costumes took the visitors back to the time when the swedes besieged the city. They roasted their roosters with charcoal on the spit and the peasant soup sizzled in a pot over an open fire.

The visitors, however, got nothing of all this. They had to eat at the stands outside of the actual camp.
