Historical tents

Travel in time with our tents

Whether you need a shelter for a fencing tournament, medieval jugglers or want to revive a traditional crafts market, a historical tent will surely attract the attention of all event visitors. 

Based on tents from the late Gothic period through to the 30 Years War, you can choose various shapes, sizes and colours.

Not all tents are the same

Unrivalled workmanship, quality materials
and respect for tradition. That is a matter of course for us!

To ensure that the tent fits into the period it is meant to represent while being truly airy and functional, we use high-quality cotton or mixed fabrics. It depends on where and how you want to use the tent. 

For structures, we use quality and carefully processed wood from Czech forests. In addition, the entire structure is complemented by reliable components so that the tents are safe in every respect.

Historical tent – a magical journey into the past

We have been making historical tents in our workshop using proven processes for quite a few years. We design them with the utmost care and with regard to the specific needs of the customer. You decide what your tent should be. Leave the rest to us. So what do we pride ourselves on?

Types of historical tents

Are you organising a historical market or a fencing tournament? Choose one of our historical tents!
We produce a wide range of historical tents in various sizes and colours.

Historical tents with peripheral poles

A varied group of tents with a structure of peripheral poles and a central pole. The floor plan is divided into: 

  • Tudor (hexagon)
  • Herold (octagon)
  • Windsor (dodecagon)
  • Louvre (dodecagon)
  • Baldachýn (square)
  • Landsknecht (square)

We can produce each of the tents in different sizes and colours.

Historical tents with felly structure

The structure of the Merlin tent with a circular ground plan consists of a felly structure suspended from a central pole. The Artuš tent is an extended version of the circular tent (i.e. it has an oval floor plan).

As in the previous category, we can produce both types in different sizes and colours. 

Can't keep track of all the types and sizes?

We have a lot of historic tents on offer. Generally, each historical tent with peripheral poles can be ordered in a basic or prolonged version. In addition, there are several sizes. With a few exceptions, these tents can be ordered with a 3m, 4.5m or 6m floor plan. And then also in an prolonged version based on these dimensions. This simple rule does not apply to the Louvre tent, which has slightly different sizes.

In the case of tents with a felly structure, the dimensions are slightly different, and this is the case for each of the two types on offer.

Frequently asked questions

How do you choose the materials?

We always choose quality and proven materials. We personally test all materials we use. We wouldn't let anything leave the workshop which we wouldn't feel comfortable in ourselves. 

What is the difference between wooden and metal accessories?

We offer two types of accessories - wooden and metal. The basic accessories include wooden pegs and a flag pole, while the more robust option includes iron pegs and a weathervane.

What are the warranty conditions?

The lawful 2-year warranty is a matter of course. We stand behind our products. We are ready to help you with after-sales service if something goes wrong.

What can I select?

In addition to the material, you can choose the type of accessories, the sccalop shape and, in the case of the cotton fabric, also colour. The tent can either be a single colour or a combination of two colours.

Once in your tent, you will never want to leave.

We always tailor each tent to the conditions and specific requirements of our customers.
