Landshuter Hochzeit Festival in Landshut, Bavaria

Landshuter Hochzeit 1475 also called Landshut Wedding is considered to be one of the largest festival in Europe. Not only German people participate in this wedding festival but also visitors from all over he world. The spectators in this wedding festival are also coming in all corners of the globe. The 2,000 or more participants are wearing Medieval costumes during the festival. This is held every four years in Landshut, a city in Bayern or Bavaria, Germany. This festival commemorates the wedding in 1475 between Hedwig, the Polish King’s daughter, and George, the son of the Duke of Landshut. I witnessed it for the first time last July 2009. I believed I am coming to this city again in 2013. I might see you there!

Here are the pictures I took last July 2009.
You can see the participants wearing the colourful and attractive Medieval or Middle Age costumes during the festival. I am thinking if I will wear one during my next visit. What do you think folks?
The men participants must let their hair grow to participate in this festival. Did you notice that most of the men’s hair in the picture are long?
