The Spanish Rapier, the Persian Shamshir, the Japanese Katana – few objects of human culture exert such fascination as the sword. Throughout all times and regions it has been as well a weapon as a symbol, a work of art and a high-tech product.

The Sword Festival at Deutsches Klingenmuseum will consist of two full days devoted to this world-wide fascination of the sword in all its facets. Historical bladed weapons and modern sword forging, fencing techniques from Europe to the Far East: Sword-Enthusiasts will be delighted!

The Sword Festival will include:

Sword Fair
The Sword Fair offers a wide range of products: in the first place there will be modern hand-forged custom swords and historical bladed weapons. But also factory made training swords and blades from serial production, training equipment, books, sword ornaments and elements of pop-culture that are related to the sword, can be presented here.

Collectors’ Convention
At the Collectors' Convention, enthusiasts of historical pieces have the opportunity to present their collections, to establish new contacts, and to discuss with other participants.

[/b]From European sabre fencing to Filipino Kali: in a sports hall in the immediate vicinity of the Klingenmuseum, workshops in different fencing arts will be offered, for beginners as well as advanced students, children and adults.

Info Café
At the Info Café, museums, clubs and associations related to the sword have the opportunity to present themselves to the public and to convey their work.

Lectures and demonstrations
Designated professionals will give lectures on the history and significance of the sword, while in the museum's courtyard fencing clubs and craftsmen will present demonstrations of their skills.
