Krampus Processions in Austria & Germany


Rev. Al Ridenour of the Art of Bleeding has just returned from Austria and Germany where he attended some Krampus processions. He has posted some images of the devil-like beasts (and their entourages) on his Facebook page.

Hurrah for St. Nick’s traditional henchman! Finally got to experience Krampus firsthand — three times, in fact, twice in its most traditional form in Bad Gastein, Austria, then again in a more urban setting (Munich) where different versions of the figure from different regions made their way through the city square.
