Buring of the Boeoegg, April 29

29 Apr 2014

The Sechselaeuten (ringing of the six o'clock bells) is a traditional end of winter festival with a parade of guilds in historical uniforms on horseback and the burning of the Boeoegg, a symbolic snowman. The faster the Boeoegg explodes, the hotter the summer will be according to traditional weather rules. Photos: EPA
