Dance of the witches

Date published: 08 Sep 2017 - Written by: Jasmin

The mountain in the background is the Kandel, not far from Waldkirch in the Black Forest.

It’s southern Germany’s version of the Blocksberg or Brocken (a mountain in the Harz), where witches meet on Walpurgis Night (1st of May) to celebrate the arrival of spring (fertility festival). At the Kandel, witches meet at the Kandelfelsen, a group of very special rocks where they dance.
