In Braunlage, Hohegeiß and Sankt Andreasberg

Every year on April 30th Braunlage, Hohegeiß and Sankt Andreasberg is transformed: dark creatures, mischievous witches and demonic devils take to the streets and squares. To ensure that you blend in; there are “Makeup Teams” for children and adults all around the town.
Here every can be transformed into their own scary witch or evil devil. You could also opt for funny creatures that are created as descendants of the Prince of Darkness. Braunlage celebrates the night with an eerily beautiful parade that marches through the town. Then to entertain the children, a special Walpurgis game is held on the floating stage in the park, followed by hellish live music from various bands on the stage in the middle of the park lake while witches streak across the lake!
After 11 o’clock in the evening the "Great Walpurgis Show" and the devils speech begins. A spectacular firework show ends the spooky night. There is plenty of food and drink available all night. Large Walpurgis spectacle at the Spa Park Lake and all around Braunlage – be here!


In Hohegeiss

Children celebrate Walpurgis in the mountain village dressed up as little witches and devils as they lead a procession through the streets. There will be a little Walpurgis theatre game and a cool party on the Schützenplatz afterwards! At 8 o’clock the Walpurgis party starts in the Panoramic Hotel bar “Zur Hölle” with dancing into May. Choosing of the Upper Witch and the May Queen also takes place.
