St.Martin’s Lantern Procession with Helen Doron Early English

Helen Doron Early English’s Mini-Kindergarten is holding a lantern procession for children between the ages of 18 months and 4 years on Thursday, 8th November at 5pm.

The meeting point is at the upper end of the green strip in the Adenauerallee, in front of house number 21.

They will be accompanied by St.Martin on his pony for a short walk to a bonfire where they will sing sings in both English and German.  Warm drinks will be available as will typical St.Martin’s “Weckmänner” – a sort of gingerbread man made out of dough.

Guests are welcome, although a donation is requested from anyone who does not attend the kindergarten.

Lantern Festival (Laternenfest)

The annual lantern festival (Laternenfest) in Bad Homburg takes place between the 2nd and 5th of September, 2011.

The festival stretches from the end of the pedestrian precinct next to the Rathaus all the way up to the other end of the Louisenstraße, and then across the road to the Festplatz.

There is also a procession on Saturday evening, which leaves Kirdorf at around 8.30pm and goes along the Kaiser-Friedrich-Promenade and the edge of the Kurpark.  On Sunday evening it leaves Ober-Eschbach at 8.30pm to return by a slightly different route.

One of the easiest ways to get there is by taking the S-Bahn (S5) to Bad Homburg and walking from the station to the Louisenstraße, although getting to the Festplatz at the other end can take a while!  While the procession takes place most of the bus routes cannot run.
