DANCE INTO MAY in Frankfurt

The best parties in town

In times of Corona you are not allowed to dance into May in big groups, of course. This year everything is a little different. We want to tell you how you can still follow this beautiful tradition. But first, let's take a look at where the custom actually comes from:

The night from April 30 to May 01 is Walpurgis Night. Originally, this was a pagan spring festival. By all sorts of measures, such as abundant noise, roar of pipes, drums and shooting the evil spirits of darkness should be driven away. It was later reinterpreted by Christianity as a night of witches and druids led by the devil.

The name Walpurgisnacht derives from Walburga (also Walpurga or Walpurgis), an abbess from England (710-779). This saint's memorial day was celebrated on May 1 in the Middle Ages. She was the patroness of maids and peasant women. She was also considered the protector of the magic arts, who was supposed to fight the sinister actions of witches and fiends.

The Walpurgis celebration on the Brocken in the Harz mountains is famous. The first organized celebration took place already in 1896. From 1899, the celebrants could then even go up with the Brockenbahn. In recent years, the Walpurgis celebration on the Brocken has developed into a mass event with folk festival character and tens of thousands of visitors from all over Germany. The mixture of customs, magic and eroticism is apparently fascinating for many.

The Dance into May is the modern form of the old custom of celebrating the beginning of May (1. May) on Walpurgis Night (April 30) with dancing and singing.

And how is dancing into May in 2020? - Most definitely: virtually!
