The programm of the Festival contains for example “Der Rosenkavalier”, “Don Giovanni” and “La Cenerentola”. More over there is the opera “Charlotte” for the first time. Of course there is also the Highlight of the Festival “Jedermann“.

For those you could not get any tickets there are the Festival nights by Siemens at the Kapitelplatz. You can follow the Shows and concerts via a huge screen in the middle of the square. The entrance is free.

Enjoy the Festival summer! :)

April 24th, 2014 Maypole

The tradition of erecting the maypole is celebrated a bit different in each region. In general it is about a huge tree or trunk which is decorated and erected on the 1st of May in the centre of each village (also here in Grödig). Before erecting the maypole it is usually carried through the village accompanied by a local marching band. In the past men had to erect the tree themselves but nowadays they often use machines as well. 1st of May is celebrated the whole day and of course there is plenty of  traditional Austrian food and a lot of beer! Also the traditional “Dirdnl” Dress and the “Lederhose” is a must-have on this day! :)

March 7th, 2014 Easter

2014 we celebrate Easter in April: Palm Sunday is on April 13th. On this day we start Easter by carrying palms. But where does this tradition come from?
On Palm Sunday the palms are carried first to the church where they get blessed. After that we place them in our houses. It should remind us of the day where Jesus rode into Jerusalem and People cheered to him as a Kind by laying down Palms on his way. They did that because Palms were a sign for independence these days. A traditional Palm (or as we call it “Palmbuschen”) is made of 7 natural materials. Some People do it a bit less traditional and decorate their palms with small easter eggs and ribbons.
Another Tradition on Palm Sunday: The Family member which sleeps longer than the others is called “Palmesel” (that means Palm donkey) :)
