Middeleeuwse Jaarmarkt (Annual medieval market)

Annual medieval market

Summer is almost over, and we’ll celebrate this with a large annual medieval party on 24 and 25 August. For two days, the preHistorisch Dorp will host a large market in medieval style, where traders offer their goods. The annual medieval market is meant for everyone who enjoys a lively spectacle of artisans, knights, merchants, storytellers, and more.

Historical products


There’s something for everyone at the medieval market. The museum market square will be surrounded by wooden stalls where merchants offer their goods. The scent of herbs and spices will mingle with the aromas of freshly baked bread and roasted meat, while you keep your eyes peeled for special medieval objects. From metal items up to sheep skins and from the finest fabrics up to artisanal wood carvings. The potters sell a large amount of medieval earthenware, the beekeeper has delicious honey and the cloth merchant has the finest hand-dyed fabrics. Also, there are plenty more traders scattered across the museum.
