73. Stein-und Burgfest

Sep 6, 2024 - Sep 8, 2024


On the second weekend in September, the traditional stone and castle festival always attracts numerous people from Mayen and the surrounding area to the town center. A varied program awaits them all every year. On Saturday and Sunday, the craftsmen's and farmers' market at Genovevaburg Castle and in the castle gardens offers new and tried-and-tested products.

Sunday is all about tradition. After a parade, the popular morning pint takes place from 11 a.m., which is opened with a barrel tapping. For all fans of sweet treats, the Mayen volunteer fire department will be presenting an 80-metre-long apple strudel at the castle entrance. With Sunday shopping, you can combine a visit to the festival with a nice shopping spree. The stone and castle festival in Mayen has all this and much more to offer.
