Walpurgis in Wernigerode and surroundings

From the 30th of April to the 1st of May the time has come again - the witches and devils dance through the Harz. The Harzer Walpurgis Night is celebrated in more than 20 locations in the region. From our hotel you can easily reach the center of the bubbling cauldron in Bad Grund, Braunlage, Hahnenklee, Sankt Andreasberg, Schierke, Wernigerode and Thale. Whether active in proper disguise or as a fascinated spectator - the Walpurgis Night in the Harz is an unforgettable experience for everyone and a must do for all Harz residents and tourists.

If you have never heard of the Walpurgis Night before and attend the spectacle for the first time, here are some informative facts for you:

Walpurgis Night is a traditional Northern and Central European festival. The name tells of St. Walburga, her feast day until the Middle Ages on May 1, the day of her canonization. The name Walpurgis Night became known through Goethe's Faust (Part I, 1808).


Where the devil is everywhere in the Harz, we have listed below. No matter which city you choose! We provide central accommodation for the tired creatures.
