13th Witches' Market in Idstein, 13 and 14 April 2019
Experience the special atmosphere when numerous traditional merchants offer their goods for sale, when they demonstrate traditional handicraft and provide you with delicious medieval food such as "cherry beer" or "pork roasted on a spit".
The visitors will feel part of the market while watching potters, knife grinders, glass blowers, wood turners and salters at work.
