Welcome to our German language courses in Mainz!
An important part of the carnival in Mainz is the die street-carnival (especially the Monday before Shrove Tuesday) – the entire city turns into a singing, laughing and dancing nation. The highlight of the carnival is the carnival procession on the Monday before Shrove Tuesday, which up to half a million people experience in Mainz every year. Politically motived wagons, standard-bearers, guards and especially the colourful „Schwellköpp'“ are part of the scenery at the carnival procession in Mainz.

Wiesbaden is the state in Germany which is mainly recognized by Frankfurt which is the gateway to Europe and only 30 km away from Wiesbaden.
Wiesbaden is situated on the right, northern bank of the river Rhine, opposite the city of Mainz on the other side of the river,. It is the capital of the state of Hessen and it is only a short distance from Frankfurt am Main.
Wiesbaden is famous for its thermal springs and spa. Use of the thermal springs is first documented by the Romans.

Christmas in Mainz / Germany
Germany celebrates Christmas on Dec. 24, the Holy Night – but Christmas celebrations in Germany start in earnest on December 1.
On that day children get to open the first of the 24 doors of their advent calendar – there are twenty-four numbered doors. Inside each door there is a picture to symbolize Christmas.
In almost all German cities there is a Christmas market. The centuries-old tradition is a feast for the senses. The ambience is enhanced by the aromas of hot chestnuts, grilled sausages and other tasty snacks. The Glühwein mulled wine (hot spiced wine ) is reason alone for a stroll through the Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas market) in Mainz.
The undisputed focal-point of the entire Christmas period, in the community and in the family, is the Christmas tree. A German Christmas without the green fir tree is simply inconceivable.
The giant trees that stand in public are especially grown for this purpose and carefully looked after in municipal wood. They are often up to 25 metres.
In parts of Germany, people believe that the Christ Child sends a messenger in Christmas Eve. He appears as an angel in a white robe and crown, bearing gifts. The angel is called Christkind. There is also a Christmas Eve figure called Weihnachtsmann or Christmas Man, he looks like Santa Claus and also brings gifts. Children leave letters on their windowsills for Christkind.
Ostern (Easter) in Germany
Easter in German-Speaking Europe
The Germanic celebration of Easter (Ostern in German) is very much like that in most of the Christian world. It features the same fertility and spring-related icons—eggs, bunnies, flowers—and many of the same Easter customs. The three major German-speaking countries (Austria, Germany and Switzerland) are predominantly Christian and Easter is an important time for both Catholics and Protestants in the German-speaking lands. The art of decorating hollowed-out eggs (ausgeblasene Eier) for Easter is an Austrian and German tradition.
Origins of Easter
The Easter celebration goes back to the earliest days of the Christian church. But the date of this festival has been controversial from the very beginning. Even the origin of the name of the most important celebration in the Christian calendar is unclear.
It is not by accident that Easter features such symbols of fertility as the egg and the rabbit, aka the Easter bunny (der Osterhase).
The Easter celebration (das Osterfest) takes on both religious and secular forms. The Christian religious celebration is the most important day in the church calendar, reflecting Christianity's very beginnings in the Resurrection of Jesus. In the western church, Easter is celebrated on the first Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal equinox (die Tagundnachtgleiche). (The Eastern Orthodox Easter can fall one, four or five weeks later.) This "movable feast" depends on phases of the moon (Mondphasen, Mondwechsel) and can therefore fall on a Sunday between March 22 and April 25. In 2004, Easter fell on April 11, but Easter Sunday in 2003 was on April 20. In 2005, Easter is celebrated on March 27.
