Travel Tips for Gernsbach

Carnival is not only in Cologne or Duesseldorf

by Nelie

In and around Gernsbach they celebrate carnival which is also known as Alemanische Strassenfastnacht. The traditional reason for Strassenfastnacht was to chase away the winter.

Several clubs exist e.g. Waldschaedder or Bleichhexen. The real clownish time in Gernsbach starts with the erection of the Narrenbaum on the marketplace and a procession. The city is also decorated with swags of rags.
On Thursday which is in Germany know as Altweiberfastnacht or Schmutziger Donnerstag the fools conquer the town-hall and they govern the city until Ash Wednesday

The picture is taken from www.waldschaedder.de and shows the raising of the Narrenbaum

The Murg Rafters

by Kathrin_E

Rafting and timber trade was the base of the economy in many of those towns along the rivers in the Back Forest. Gernsbach earned a modest wealth with this business. The timbers that were cut up in the forests had to be transported to the cities along the Rhine where they were sold and used for construction. The waterway was easiest. The logs were tied to long rafts and drifted down the rivers. The rafters lived in a hut on their floating merchandise until they reached the markets where they untied and sold the logs. Then they marched back home or hitched a ride on a cart to start a new raft.

Nowadays timbers are transported by truck or train. Rafting is only revived as a historical tradition. A club in Gernsbach who name themselves the Murgflößer (Murg rafters) have rebuilt such a raft. Unlike the historical ones it has a motor and can travel upstream. It is more a party vehicle, though... There is a long table in the middle where the passengers stand and drink wine which is sold on board.
The uniform they invented was probably inspired by carpenters and probably does not resemble real work clothes of former times that much, but they look handsome in it. It consists of black pants and vest, a white shirt, a black hat and a yellow necktie.

During the Altstadtfest the Murgflößer club invites to ride the raft (2 € charge). The Murg is a shallow river, blocked by a dam downstream and the Murg island upstream. The navigable distance is hardly more than 200 m. Don't expect any thrilling whitewater rafting, it is a quiet affair. Enjoy a glass of wine and the view of the river banks.

Altstadtfest Images

The entire old town is turned into a fairground with food and drink stalls.

The stall of a local jester guild, active outside carnival season (but without masks and costumes, unfortunately...)

Schnitzel!

Not everyone likes the party, though. The inhabitants of these houses have put up big signs to complain about the noise.

I wonder why they don't simply go away for the weekend if they hate it that much, instead of presenting themselves as spoilsports.
