Sorbian Easter

Religious in Bautzen

On Easter Day, Sorbian men put on tall hats and frock coats, mount their richly decorated horses and ride through Bautzen and the surrounding villages, singing religious hymns. A major procession originates in Bautzen, meeting another one in the village of Radibor in the afternoon. Download a brochure from the website for exact schedules.

For several weeks prior to Easter, locals and tourists gather for the much-celebrated Sorbian Easter market, held in Postplatz in Bautzen during weekends, to shop for colourful Easter eggs.
