Political Ash Wednesday: An overview of the parties and their speakers – Bavaria

Expected malice, serious concern, unrestrainedness and omnipresent farmers: insults are traditionally part of political Ash Wednesday. But this year something is different. An overview.

It is part of the political year in Bavaria, like the Franconian carnival in Veitshöchheim, the politicians’ derblecken on Nockherberg and the Gillamoos folk festival in Abensberg: the political Ash Wednesday in Lower Bavaria. The parties gather their supporters around them and verbally jostle their political opponents. As simple as the recipe is, it is still so popular. But this year it seems as if some people are choosing their words with a little more care.
