Zwaard & Steen

Zwaard & Steen at Castlefest

Zwaard & Steen is a sports club with a passion for history, martial arts and physical fitness. Internationally, our sport is known as HEMA: Historical European Martial Arts. Practicing HEMA is a combination of sports, movement and delving into the old martial arts as they were practiced in the middle ages. A unique experience where gaining knowledge goes hand in hand with getting fit and more confident. For over 15 years, we have been practicing longsword, dagger and wrestling techniques which are based on medieval German manuscripts like the Codex Ringeck and the Codex von Danzig. Drop by our stand for workshops or demonstrations or visit our club in Nieuwegein or Rotterdam for a free trial.

The Aviator Crew

The Aviator Crew

Meet the Aviator Crew. A colourful bunch of steampunkers, who will happily greet you in their encampment. Step into their large marquee and join in with their favourite pastime. Certainly, for a Time Traveller there is always time for a game! Take place at one of the tables and challenge one of the crew members (or somebody else) for a round. For example, how about some old Dutch table hockey, or a game of Rattrap?

If games are not your thing, they gladly invite you to one of the sleeping quarters to tell you about all the items they brought back from their travels. Also, every beginning or seasoned Time Traveller can get their timetravel passport stamped. The crew is at Castlefest for everybody, young and old!

More information will follow soon.
