Lantern walk

Barossa Lantern Walk 2022

“Laternenlauf” – an after dark family event – Just when it’s nice and chilly outside the Barossa German Language Association Inc. invites you to their annual lantern walk – a favourite German family tradition. All families, including grandparents, are very welcome to join from 4pm. The walk itself will be starting at 6pm, please bring warm clothes.

A great opportunity to connect with the German culture, as the lantern walks are done everywhere in Germany on Saint Martins Day in November when it gets dark early in Europe.

Lanterns: Bring your own lantern from home (battery candles – no real candles please) or learn to make a lantern at our lantern workshop.

Lantern workshop: We will start making lanterns from 4pm (parents to assist young children) before the walk.
If you want to make a lantern with your kids please register by sending an email to Steffi:
This is important for our planning, we want to make sure there is enough material and lantern lights.
The cost is $5 per lantern 🌟

Laterne song: During the walk we will sing the German songs “Laterne, Laterne” and “Ich geh mit meiner Laterne” – we will do some practice runs before we go outside.

Food and Drinks: German style food and drinks available for purchase on the night. Think German sausage roll, sauerkraut, pretzel, Glühwein, tea, … 😋

Sorry no eftpos so please bring cash.

This event is in collaboration with Barossa Village and Barossa Coop. Support greatly appreciated!
