Hanseatic Days

For many years the Hanseatic Days is the summer’s main event, which is organised by the Limbaži Museum. Each year the celebrations take place on the first Saturday and are part of the Limbaži city festival programme.
Accordingly, on this day the castle mound is full of animal life: sheep, goats, horses and rabbits.
Medieval soldiers demonstrate their skill in archery, spear throwing, shield lifting, sword holding, etc.
Activities such as bronze casting and “ciba” (a small container, usually for butter) wattling from alder are taking place; things are made from birch bark, twine is being dyed with natural plant paints, paper making with greetings from the castle’s medical herb garden, fortune telling and healing amulets, etc.
