May 7, 2023

Kempen, a picturesque town in Germany, is known for its rich cultural heritage and beautiful architecture. The town has managed to preserve its history while keeping up with modern times. This balance is visible in the Kempen Old Town Festival & Highland Games that take place every year. This festival is a celebration of the town’s history and its Scottish heritage.

Visitors can expect to see traditional Celtic music, dance performances, and athletic competitions and people dressed up in medieval costumes parading through the streets on horseback or performing traditional dances like the “Schäfflertanz.”

One of the main attractions of the festival is the Highland Games. These games are a series of athletic events that originated in Scotland centuries ago. They include activities such as caber tossing, hammer throwing, and tug-of-war. The games are a true test of strength and endurance, and they draw competitors from all over the world.

In addition to the Highland Games, visitors to the Old Town Festival can learn more about Kempen’s rich history. There are historical tours available that take you through some of the town’s most important landmarks, including its ancient castle ruins.
