On the 11th of November the German School in Bratislava will hold its fourth annual St. Martin’s Day Parade at Bratislava Castle. In Germany there is a long tradition of celebrating the day, in which children, their parents and teachers take part in a parade of lanterns.

The children carry lanterns and sing songs such as “Ich geh mit meiner Laterne...”, while walking behind St. Martin on horseback. At St. Martin’s Cathedral, the parade stops and a famous scene from the life of St. Martin is acted out: Martin divides his coat and gives half of it to a freezing poor man. Everybody then sings Martin’s Song and walks back to the German school, where sweets and drinks are prepared for the children and spiced wine for the adults. The children share home-baked St Martin goose with each other to remember his goodness. The German School invites everybody to come to the castle entrance at 5pm on the 11th of November to take part in this atmospheric event!
