Country Bans Loud Music And Dancing For Easter Weekend
You can expect there to be very little clubbing and raving in Germany during Easter weekend, as a centuries old ban prohibits dancing and loud music during the four-day holiday weekend.
You are breaking the law, known as Tanzverbot, from Thursday to Easter Sunday if you dance in public in 13 of the 16 German states. In some states, the law extends until Easter Monday, but generally varies in seriousness of enforcement. This archaic law dates back to the Middle Ages, and as Germany’s society becomes more secular, we can expect more and more challenges to this law being made. But for now, Germans will just have to have their easter egg hunts sans their favorite native producers Paul van Dyk, Boys Noize, Robin Schulz and Loco Dice.
