History as an experience: this is what the nationally renowned Living History events on the fortress plateau promise again this year. These include the elaborate production "The Swedes Conquer the Königstein", which takes visitors back to the era of the Thirty Years' War with numerous actors. This year, the spectacle can be experienced on 10 and 11 June. In addition to the impressive battle scenes and authentic everyday scenes, for the first time interested visitors will also find further information and educational offers on the history of the time. The "Cannon thunder over the Elbe valley" with demonstrations of replicas of historical black powder guns will also take place again on 26 August. In addition, 19th century Saxon soldiers, historically dressed and armed, patrol the area on selected weekends;
