Winter Days

Carnival

  • Stréimännchen & Stréifrächen

    The people of Remich have their very own traditions even on Ash Wednesday. On this day, the end of the carnival season is celebrated through the burning of the Stréihmännchen’. Every leap year, the tradition says that a female figure, called 'Stréifrächen', is burned instead of the traditional male figure.
    The tradition requires that the 'Stréihmännchen, a figure made of straw, is carried through the streets of Remich during a dancing procession. Upon arriving on the Moselle bridge, fire is set to the figure and thrown into the water.

  • Bonfire

    Another tradition is the bonfire night, taking place on Sunday after carnival, where a large cross is burned marking the end of the winter season.
