Only about five years after his sudden appearance, the sensitive young man was suspected to have been murdered.

To honour the famous foundling, Ansbach prepares the "Kaspar-Hauser-Festival" every two years, which describe his short, tragic life in manifold ways. This year, everything is focused on the "Child of Europe", how Kaspar Hauser has been called already during his lifetime. Ambitious lectures, artistic and scientific contributions, a criminal play about the murder of Kaspar Hauser, music and visual art belong to the manifold offer during the festival.

"Thuringia Montgolfiade"

It was a hot-air balloon which brought a human being up to the sky in 1783. This hot-air balloon was built by the French brothers Montgolfier. That's why the event is named after the Montgolfier brothers. Since 1992 the hot-air balloon sports club Thuringia has been organising the greatest hot-air balloon event in Thuringia and one of the most fascinating hot-air balloon event in Germany.

Lichtenau: Knights Games

The aldermen of Nuremberg have erected a defiant, but also quite a snug border bulwark at the border to the margravate Ansbach. In both margrave wars in 1449 and 1553 Lichtenau was an important site of the clash between the imperial city and the margraves.

Hardly a knight tournament can set up such an impressive frame. Craftsmen, traders, minstrels and mercenary camps in and around the fortress bring the time around 1500 back to life.
