The Historical Meistertrunk Festival is found throughout the old city of Rothenburg ob der Tauber.
Each year on Pentecost weekend the festival retells a story from the Thirty Years' War of when the city was conquered by the troops of General Tilly and only saved from destruction by the city mayor Nusch. It is said that Nusch impressed the enemy general by drinking 3 1/4 litres in one go. The story is retold by historical groups throughout the city and, in particular, in multiple theatre performances in the Kaisersaal.
The festival was added to the UNESCO German list of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2014.
