Dishes with a history

A medieval menu that tickles the palate and all the other senses, too – based on original ingredients known in the Middle Ages and inspired by purchase lists from the archives of a medieval imperial city. A team of chefs who are enthused by the tasteful approach to a rustic era. And a minstrel who combines jesting with causerie – after all, guests don't want to miss out on medieval lore. You'll learn lots of interesting facts from 800 years of medieval culture:

  • Charles the Great and the Carolingian Age
  • the St. Gall Monastery Plan: culture spreads from the monasteries
  • the liberating influence of the cities – knights and imperial towns
  • fashion, festivals, plague and war: the everyday lives of the common people

ANGUS, THE ITINERANT MONK

Der WandermönchThe competent escort for your group! Angus, the itinerant monk, will tell you some down-to-earth facts about what life was really like in the ninth century. Sent out as a missionary to Christianise the heathen Alemanni, he left his Irish homeland and started off on a long peregrination in the direction of St. Gall. The witty wandering monk will accompany you for a while – and tell you of some of the dreadful dangers which he met on his wanderings, his encounter with the weird "Man of the Woods" and of the rumours circulating about the alleged plan to build a whole new monastery town near Messkirch. Give him a lift on your horse-drawn carriage, or offer him a seat at your table – the itinerant monk will reward you with songs and stories.

Angus, the itinerant monk, escort for groups, 60 minutes, 95 EUR standard charge
