Lords of the house party Radolfzell

General information about the host party:

The landlord’s festival is held every year on the third Sunday in July. The highlight of the event is the Moos water procession on Monday. Boats decorated with wreaths of flowers come rowing across Lake Constance at 8 o’clock in the morning and are greeted by hundreds of people in Radolfzell. Afterwards, the Mooser Hausherrenamt takes place in the ULF Minster.

Theopont, Senesius and Zeno – the three Radolfzell landlords are the namesakes of the landlord festival.

Originally of a purely Christian nature, the Radolfzell Hausherrenfest has developed over the years into a festival with many secular aspects. Numerous associations organize a colourful programme for young and old at this event together with the cultural office of the town of Radolfzell. Concerts, a children’s program and culinary delights attract numerous people to the shores of Lake Constance in Radolfzell year after year.

On Saturday at 3 p.m., the Radolfzell aid organizations will give an insight into their skills in a demonstration exercise.
