On Saturday 28 May, the 16th World Games Day will take place.

The day of action draws attention to the value of free play for child development and healthy growing up. The Königstein Fortress, which has been awarded as family-friendly, is organising the big games festival "Familien-Spiele-Fest(ung)" on this occasion in great anticipation already a week before. On Saturday, 20 and Sunday, 21 May, a wide variety of games and handicrafts will be on offer for children and adults. The highlight is a huge mosaic picture that visitors to the fortress can assemble together from thousands of Lego bricks. For the youngest visitors, Benjamin Blümchen will be out and about with his wheel of fortune. 
The fortress will also present historical games. They are a reminder of the time when the fortress was inhabited by families of soldiers. Up until the beginning of the 20th century, children met to shoot eagles, play tug-of-war and sack races.
