»Knights & Heroes« Group Package
We begin with a tour of Archduke Ferdinand’s famous Rüstkammer, or armoury, featuring rare examples of jousting armour and the suits of armour of famous field commanders and generals. One particular rarity is the suit of armour created for the court giant Bartlmä Bon.
After the tour, why not seize the unique opportunity to try on some of these original pieces of armour for yourself. Experience why, back then, it was always the men who took longer to get dressed and the ladies who were readily dazzled by the sight of them.
