Wallenstein celebration in Cheb

22. 8. 2014 - 23. 8. 2014

A spectacular celebration of history in the West Bohemian town of Cheb.

Wallenstein celebrations in Cheb have been held since 2005, but their history is much older. The murder of Duke Albrecht of Wallenstein during his last visit to Cheb in 1634 has been remembered by the city for centuries. The Wallenstein celebrations include parades during the day and by torchlight during the night, a few fairytale performances for children, a historic market on the square, falconry demonstrations, period music and dance, and an evening celebration with fireworks. You can also look forward to a riveting reconstruction of the events surrounding Wallenstein’s last visit and a reenactment of warring skirmishes.
