Lance for water jousting in Halle (Saale)

Lance for water jousting in Halle (Saale), Germany

This showcase at the Hallors and Saline Museum in Halle (Saale) displays the costume of a Hallor with its typical 18 buttons and a lance. Such lances are still in use for the traditional  water joustings one can experience e.g. during the lantern festival of Halle (Hallesches Laternenfest).
