Helau: Celebrate and fast differently

Helau: Celebrate and fast differently
Helau: Celebrate and fast differently

Ran to the neckties it was called to the women's carnival. Now the fools have officially been out since yesterday. It may be celebrated until the costume bursts, uh or something similar. By the way, if you are looking for inspiration for a disguise at the last minute, I've thought about Five ideas for famous Frankfurters . I'm sure there's something in it.

Alongside all the cheering, I'm always looking forward most to the - Kreppel. Uh ah ah oh…yes, that's how it is. Until Ash Wednesday, when everything is over or the last Kreppel is gone. Instead of celebrating foolishly, fasting until Easter is the order of the day. Every human being has his own ideas. It doesn't always have to be food sacrifice. Because a friend of mine feeds like ever, but tries to put the smartphone away more often. Abstinence, I looked it up once - nonsense, what am I typing - googled of course: Abstinence means therefore „to stay away“ or „to renounce“ .

Statt oversize more minimalistic and simple. But an outer frame makes any intention to do without much easier, I think to myself. A break in a monastery or the way back to the Middle Ages for a few days refreshing mind and soul as well as one's own doing certainly uncommon. The good news is that no one needs to book a flight or travel miles to do so. No, you can find everything here in the Rhine-Main area right on your doorstep!

We are teeming with simply beautiful places of pilgrimage. That's why I picked my favorite three for you.  In this sense: Helau and a good time!

· The monastery Lorsch- appointed by UNESCO as world cultural heritage from the 8th century, the monastery is already mentioned in the Nibelungenlied. Herb gardens and fully preserved Torshalle and Königshalle - the architectural highlight. The monastery has among other things the “Middle Ages to participate“ in the program.

· Marienthal Franciscan Monastery. Offers daily stays „monastery to live with“ in a 14th century complex near Geisenheim near Mainz; contains not only one of the first printing works, but is one of the oldest places of pilgrimage in Germany.

· Ursuline monastery St. Angela Königstein. Founded in 1884, the house was a former girls' school in the Taunus mountains and places great value on “days of reflection“ and offers its guests the opportunity for “time-out“.

· monastery ruin Arnsburg.  That runs as ruin now out of competition on the list because it's also so very beautiful that it's almost too much of a treat. :-)
