Kinderzeche Dinkelsbühl - historic festival 14th to 23rd July 2017
During the 30 Years War (1618 - 1648) broad parts of Germany were destroyed, while the medieval city of Dinkelsbühl was spared. This is because of the children of Dinkelsbühl begged favour with the Swedish colonel. For the past 100 years or so Dinkelsbühl has celebrated its delivery with a festival where the whole story is performed again. Even today the city continues to show its grateful appreciation for their help by giving coloured bags of sweets to all the children taking part in the procession.
