Meine Vorfahren (  #Donauschwaben  )  sind von #Elsass   #Lothringen    #Pfalz  1763-1787 in das #Banat   ausgewandert. Da nicht jeder das Banat kennt, habe ich dazu eine Karte  "gebastelt".

Sometime in the 15th or 16th century, fishermen from Ulm decided they could joust just as well as any knights. Lacking horses, they substituted boats and took their tournament to the Danube. This turned into a flourishing tradition, and fishermen's descendents still hold a "Fischerstechen" (literally "fisher-piercing") every four years.  The city of Ulm has been entertained by a Fischerstechen over the last two weekends.

The tournaments are held on the two Sundays leading up to Schwörmontag ("Oath-Monday" - it's a festive time of year here in Ulm), and begin in the morning with a parade through the city.  At various locations the parade stops and traditional dances are performed.  In the afternoon the parade arrives at the banks of the Danube and the water-jousting begins.

The jousters themselves all represent characters from the history and legends of Ulm, and they wear appropriate costumes.  From the back of traditional fishing boats, these characters attempt to push each other into the water using long lances.  As a spectator, it was hard to tell whether this was easier or harder than jousting in armour on horseback; but it certainly was unambiguously entertaining!

In memoriam danube swabian 
 
+NIA Ops +Ingress 

Have another #portalgem   for you.

This granite monument is a dedication to the countless Danube Swabian men and women who settled and helped form Kitchener, ON (originally called Berlin) in it's early days and to their heritage as a people.

 Following the end of the First World War, a large number of Danube Swabians (a collective term for the German-speaking population that lived along the Danube River), move to North America and settled the southern Ontario region, giving Kitchener-Waterloo our rich, German heritage (we are home to the world's largest Bavarian festival outside of Bavaria itself). Some 250,000 Swabian's lost their lives in concentration camps in WWII, many of whom had relational ties to the Danube Swabian population here.

This monument is a dedication to their memory, their courage and sacrifice that inspire us, and to their descendants, to honour, cherish and further our cultural traditions.

1770-1780 King St E
