The Walpurgis Night is an event which is popular far beyond the Harz mountain area, and tens of thousands participate - both locals and visitors! Many of them like to dress up like witches and devils themselves, putting on strange clothes and behaving accordingly. Others are simply enchanted by the unique atmosphere of this exciting event.
On April 30th around noon, the first witches appear in Bad Grund—very small witches, as the children’s Walpurgis opens this exciting event.
When the sun goes down, the witches become bigger and have even more fun. People enjoy themselves in the streets eating and drinking—with popular music and good conversation.
They dance until sunrise...
