Every year in June thousands of visitors from Bernau and the surrounding region visit the Hussitenfest .
It commemorates the victory of the Bernau citizens over the Hussite army, who attacked the town in 1432.
Since 1832, when the festival was first celebrated, young and old have fun visiting the fair, and seing knights fighting against one another at a tournament at the Medieval market. Once every year there is a procession through the town centre.
