Ascension of St. Mary on the island Reichenau

Germany Baden-Württemberg Reichenau
Münsterpl. 4, 78479 Reichenau, Germany
The festival of the patron saint of Reichenau Minster is celebrated on the festival of the “Ascension of St. Mary”. This is the island’s third religious holiday in addition to the festival of St. Marcus and the Festival of the Holy Blood. It is celebrated on 15th August.

The great past is reflected even today in the island’s three religious holidays, when the shrines with the relics are taken out of the treasure chamber of the Minster of St. Mary and St. Marcus after high mass and are carried across the island in a procession, accompanied by the historic militia, people wearing traditional costumes and the religious associations.
