Days of Grunwald, part of the celebrations organized by the Grunwald municipality, became one of the biggest living history events gathering numerous reenactment groups in a large medieval encampment. The arrival of the Polish King King Jogaila (Władysław Jagiełło), the Lithuanian Duke Vytautas (Witold) and Teutonic Grand Master Ulrich von Jungingen and the participants presentation mark the beginning of the event.

The battle reenactment attracts 100.000 spectators and thousands of reenactors from all over the world. The battle, named after Grunwald by the Polish or Tannenberg by Germans, took place on 15 July 1410. It was one of the most important battles in Medieval Europe for the number of knights involved and resulted in the victory of the Polish. This victory led to an end of the Polish-Lithuanian-Teutonic War (1409-1411), the expansion of the Knights was stopped and they submitted their state to vassal of the Polish Kingdom.
