Every year on the last weekend in August, medieval handicraft moves to Bad Wimpfen. In the traditional form of the former harbour market, which King Wenzel granted the pottery guild of the Imperial City in 1391, the Guild Market delights its visitors with craftsmanship, dancing and music.

Numerous craftsmen, like makers of lamps, paintbrushes and rakes, robe tailors, glass blowers, calligraphers, instrument builders are to be admired, ... but not only old craft lures! Beside jugglers, minstrels and dancers, also knights and guards strengthen the feeling of the medieval goings-on.

The Old Town itself, with its unique architecture, is illuminated in an imaginative, sometimes bizarre and mystical kind of way. Again, stilt walkers are out and about in the alleys and a fire-dance-show lightens the nighttime sky above Bad Wimpfen. A stroll with breaks in different places, which aren't accessible on normal days.

The citizens of Wimpfen greet their guests and "express" their invitation, by putting chairs to linger and chat in front of their houses. They invite the guest: "Let the people, let the town and the lights touch you!" This wonderful gesture is inspired by the voluntary project group "Town of 1000 chairs". Wimpfen shows itself open and says hello to its guests in a very peculiar way.

The entry into the museums is free of charge this evening.

This year, everything is focused on the "Child of Europe", how Kaspar Hauser has been called already during his lifetime.
