Germany: Walpurgisnacht im Harz

On 30.04.2010, the international student office at our university organized a trip to Bad Grund, on the Harz mountains, in order to catch a glimpse at the celebration of the Walpurgisnacht. This was traditionally the night when witches gathered together and await the arrival of spring.
