In the Old City
In May, traditionally, the three-day long old town festival with a medieval crafts market attracts big crowds.
The Highland Games are being held on the castle meadows of the Kurkölnische Landesburg for over ten years. A great pleasure for participants and spectators alike!
Another sporting event for young and old is the annual Old Town Race with around 1,500 participants and the international cycling race "Around the Castle".
Classical concerts "OpenAir" are taking place in the Kulturforum Franziskanerkloster/Klosterhof, weather permitting.
