13.05.2017 – History of Knights & Students – Adventural Hiking Tour to »Plesse Castle« and Knight Feast


“Plesse-Castle” lies, not even more than two hiking hours away from Göttingen City, above the little village Eddigehausen near Bovenden. At the Castle we want to have a delicious knight feast in knightly tradition, together with students from Lower Saxony and Bremen. To get to the castle we will hike in the footsteps of former Göttingen University students. At the guided hike you will get to know surrounding region of Göttingen City and learn about the history of this region.

When we reach our goal we will firstly explore the castle. During a walkabout we will have a talk about the latest research results concerning the castle and so range from the past to the present of Göttingen University. Then we will have the knight feast were you are going to eat like knights in the middle ages. After that we will get back to Göttingen City, were you are welcome to explore the City a little bit further before you travel home again.
