Do you know when this celebration takes place each year?

Once a year at Ulm on the Danube, Germany, the Donauschwaben-Emigration to
the Crown Colony Banat of the Austrian Empire is being celebrated.
A real 'Ulmer Schachtel' is floated down the Danube. The celebrants in these
videos are wearing similar costumes as the emigrants some 300 years ago.

Hope to see you in Mt. Angel,
