The inner city, the market square and the adjacent pedestrian zone will experience a journey back in time to the 19th century on Tuesday, June 6th, in the afternoon from around 4 p.m. The Seligenstadt merchants’ procession makes a stop and provides a historical spectacle with knights, market people and other journeymen, which will also contribute to the amusement of all those present.
The spectacle begins with the picking up of the train participants, consisting of around 190 people with 20 carriages, 47 horses and seven individual riders at the Tauber Bridge by a center rider, bailiff and dispatched personnel. According to a press release from the town of Tauberbischofsheim, from which the following information is also taken, two girls from the Lebenshilfe support the collection and accompaniment of guests to the market square for the first time.
With fanfares from the town hall balcony, Gustav Endres and grandson Anton welcome the arrivals at the market square, before Mayor Anette Schmidt welcomes the visit. The working group Seligenstädter Heimatbund dives into the story and finally Armin Schaupp, in his role as chief magistrate of Mainz, will give a humorous greeting.
The supporting program takes guests back to the Middle Ages in a lively way
This opens the spectacle on the square, a small supporting program takes the guests back to the Middle Ages in a lively way. The Heimatbund gives an insight into the stacking right, because in the Middle Ages it was a city’s right to demand that merchants passing through the city unload their goods for a certain period of time on the stacking yard, “stack” them and offer them. The goods carried can be admired and questions about the escort will be answered with pleasure.
Six couples from the Tauberbischofsheim folk dance group will show European folk dances from the 19th century in their Ochsenfurt Gautracht, the Eiersheim Heimatverein will twist ropes, a technical aid that has been indispensable for thousands of years. The ropes can be purchased.
The castle ghosts and city guides mingle with the guests in historical robes and so an interesting and entertaining afternoon is planned for all train participants, the local population and all visitors. Food and drinks are already available from 3 p.m.
All preparations as well as the daily stages are documented by a chronicler and can be followed on the merchants’ train website www.kaufmannszug.com.
