For five days, the Old Market, Residenzplatz, Domplatz, Kapitelplatz and Mozartplatz are characterised by medieval craft markets, festival tents, merry-go-rounds, living customs from town and country, folk music, stalls and beer tents. The tradition of Rupertikirtag dates back to the 14th century and is a spectacle that enjoys great popularity among locals and visitors to the town. Rupertikirtag 2024.
