This is a short overview of the events we attended as a group. Internal events without access for visitors are not listed.
From June 3rd to June 5th 2017 the Hetairoi attended a multiperiod event on the Taggerhof near Graz, Austria. We demonstrated a selection of reconstructed equipment from ancient Greece ranging from the 5th to the 3rd century BCE.
Since our first event was very successful, we, Hetairoi e.V., are pleased to announce that the second event “Cultural diversity – a special view of the Antique“ will take place from 13 - 14 May 2017 in the open-air museum Schwarzenacker again.
Like before "exotic" representations from Neolithic to Late Antiquity are welcome and present.
We are looking forward seeing you again as a performer, or as a visitor.
In cooperation with the Austrian Reenactment Society, the Hetairoi explained the Classical Greek and the Macedonian Phalanx within a demonstration about the evolution of European military history.
On October 2nd and 3rd, the Varusschlacht Museum Kalkriese held the event “Forum Kalkriese” with the theme “Trade and Seafaring in Antiquity”. The Hetairoi demonstrated Hellenistic equipment.
On August 6th/7th the Hetairoi demonstrated Greek equipment from the 5th century to the 2nd century BC on the Freilichtmuseum Heuneburg, as well as a Greek military camp forge.
Living History is now a commonly encountered element of learning history first hand. Every year, in Germany, a number of events in museums are taking place, using this element to introduce the visitors to a particular subject. In relation to antiquity here, larger events have been established to Roman antiquity.In addition to Roman times, there are a number of high quality performers and groups representing different people and epochs.
“Exotic” representations enrich the Living History Hobby enormously, but they very rarely perform on such events. This state of affairs was a call for us, Hetairoi e.V., to bring to life a so-called exotic event, with impressions beginning with the Neolithic age and stretching to late antiquity.
From May 21st to 22nd 2016 the first event of this kind took place in the open air museum Schwarzenacker.
On the 18th and 19th of July 2015, our South Italian warriors took part in the Roman festival at the interactive museum Terra Vulcanica in Mayen, Germany. Under unsettled but warm weather conditions, the interested public was presented the panoplies and garments of the South Italian peoples of the 4th century B.C. with group presentations, fashion shows and direct dialogue with our members.
As in the year before, the Hetairoi were part of the “Long Night of the Museums” on Sat, Oct. 1st 2011 in the Ephesos-Museum in Vienna, Austria.
In September 2011, the Hetairoi brought ancient Greek history to life for the visitors of the Ephesos-Museum in Vienna, Austria.
At the start of April, this event took place near Vienna, Austria. It was a multi-period event with the Hetairoi marking the earliest impressions and other groups ranging up to the 15th century a.d.
This was a charity event, where all earnings were donated to the “Make-A-Wish” foundation, which supports children with cancer.

As always, we were available for questions from the audience and demonstrated several aspects of the military and civil and mythological life in Classical Greece.
On Saturday, October 2nd, the Hetairoi were part of the long night of the museums in the capitol of Austria, Vienna. During the appearance, we were able to answer many questions from the audience and demonstrated our equipment with several presentations. The event took place in the Ephesos Museum.
Early June 2010 the Hetairoi took part in the Journées Gallo Romaines in St Romain en Gal, near Lyon, France.
