About us

KRAZ z.s. organises events for members of the furry community (as KRAZ, MiniCon or Fursuit Halloween Prague) for many years. Furrstein is our new member and we hope that you'll like it as same as we do.

Why Furrstein

It is an event for every furry that wants to experience a different kind of a convention. Our intention  was always a visual impression, the spirit of the place, which must charm and glamourize you so you will want to come back to this place again and again. That is why this convention is situated inside of a medieval castle Hauenstein, which is situated in the middle of the Krušné hills. Let this place fill you up with its unique atmosphere. Plus, by attending this convention, you contribute to the reconstruction of this beautiful place.

Fursuiters

We welcome our fursuiters open heartedly and we wish for the to feel pleasant around here in their human and furry form as well. Every day from 10am to 5pm the castle is opened for public, so you don't need to worry about lack of interaction. Please bear in mind that the castle layout does not allow us to create a full-fledged fursuit lounge on the consite. However, we’ll secure you a place to at least dry up your fursuit.

Introduction

You can look forward to be accommodated inside a medieval castle Hauenstein, surrounded by a wilderness of Krušné hills and over 700 years old fortification.

The castle is filled up with knights and their squires, which will entertain you during the whole con. You will be able to see a performance of the swordplay from the Mortis group or join our congame, which will lead you on a dangerous path around the night castle, meeting our hermite and solving his mysterious riddles.

If you feel worn out by running around the castle and feeling what was it like to live in a medieval times, our banquet hall will neverending fireplaces will sure come in handy. On fridays evening there'll even be held a real medieval feast! Just watch out for gunsmiths and throw a bone or two to local beggar
