The 1. Medieval-World-Convention is a totally new concept of a medieval event. As the original meaning of the word "Convent" (lat. "Meeting"), we understand the 1.Medieval-Convention, as a meeting of everyone linked/interested in the middle ages. It doesn't matter if archeologist, historian, reenactor, hobbyist or interested laymen. Everyone is welcome, the more participate, the more interesting the event will be for everyone. Additionally the duration of the event: So that it's worth travelling even from far away, the convention will last 10 days with the option of attending only 5 days. Special features: Instead of a medieval market we will construct a craftsmen village, organized by the guilds, all carpenters/wood workers are located together, or all smithmen can be found in one alley... All camps will be installed around Jerusalem (The center of the world in those days). An extraordinary place: The ruined castle "Eisenberg" celebrates 700. anniversary and 5 more medieval castles frame this location, which grasslands offer enough space to an event of this scale. This is a "private" event: The Convention is not accesible for anyone, during the week only registered participants are allowed, on the week-ends it's possible to attend for any registered guest to attend. Always under the following condition: Every participant has to be registered to our own network.


In order to offer an interesting programm to the inernational participants, there will be a "Convention-Academy" with a widely scaled offer of courses and workshops. Every participant can offer courses or lectures. The complete programm can be found online, and can be booked online as well. In order to faciliate and to be able to better organize the participation, there is an application in English, French & German, with which you can preorder daily needs, the whole academy programm, and all practical and helpful information, like forecast, shuttlebus-connections from Munich airport or the station in Eisenberg to the convention area.


The whole event location will have a Wifi-connection (via satellite), which is included in the participation fee.

With this concept the application as well as our own social network can be used with the biggest benefit for organizing this convention. In "Jerusalem" we will recreate an oriental bazar/souk, as well as create the convention center. Whole Jerusalem will be covered with canvas and coupoles. The whole atmosphere shall be recreated the most detailed as possible. Depending on the number of participants we will be reconstructing gates of the wall with artifical stonework. There will be also a medieval peasent market with all basic food like bread, vegetables, fruits, fresh milk, meat, fish aso. To the east of Jerusalem, all medieval bathing houses will be placed. Linked to them will be the main sanitary area. Over the whole area there will be up to 8 more sanitary facilities, depending on the number of participants, with Dixi-toilets, water in containers and firewood.


The live Google-map will be updated every week. There will be marked all groups, craftsmen and any other participant (except individuals due to privacy and dataprotection laws - unless preferred to). We will have a poll about how often we should have the convention. Whether everey 2, 3, 4 or 5 years. Along with the convention we will create a new international federation for reenactment "VITA HISTORICA". The main theme of the convention is set for participants who orient with reenacting the period between 400-1500 AD. Everyone should try to recreate the highest authentic level as possible, but it's not absolutely necessary. For all non era equipment there will be a possibility to camp on the parking area. The convention area is exclusively reserved for historic equipment. Electricity will only be in "Jerusalem" and in the tavern-area in "Skandinavia". A dovecote next to Jerusalem will hold a recharging station for all cellphones, GPS, cameras & tablets, where all participants can recharge their devices for a small fee. In order to present information about living-history projects from all over the world, there will be an infromation-tent in any country-camp. This can be the "Castle region Allgäu" for Germany or "Guédelon" for France for example.
