Knights' tournament in the imperial palace Michael Dapper
06537 Kelbra, Ortsteil Tilleda
In the Early and High Middle Ages (8th to 13th century) an imperial palace in Tilleda served at times as the residence of emperors and kings. The only completely excavated site of its kind to date, Tilleda is recognized way beyond Germany's borders as a model of this type of royal residence.
For this reason, parts of the representative buildings, fortifications, houses, workshops and technical infrastructure have been reconstructed at their original location.
Brief presentations on historical topics in the exhibition buildings complete the picture. Active involvement is encouraged in the adventure museum, where visitors can try their hand at crafts from the Middle Ages themselves or have them explained.
