  • to Maientag 2019 in Vaihingen an der Enz!

    Dear friends of our city, dear fellow citizens,

    I would like to welcome you to this year's Vaihinger Maientag. I would like to especially welcome all the former Vaihinger and Vaihinger, who have remained faithful to us over the years, as well as our friends from the Hungarian twin town Köszeg, who have come to our biggest and oldest festival in our city. As every year, we are accompanied by the traditional Maientagmotto, which not only suits the special mood during the event, but also aims to bring it into everyday life during the celebration. This year's Maientagmotto is taken from the 3rd Federal President of the Federal Republic of Germany Gustav Heinemann and says:

    »He who does not want to change anything will lose what he wants to preserve«.

    In times of general satisfaction, who has not wished: »That's the way it could stay!« But if everything always just stayed as is, there would be no development and no progress, the conse- quence would be absolute standstill! Changes, be they private or professional, are an inevitably part of the natural flow of life. However, these changes often present challenges, as they are always associated with certain uncertain- ties. Nonetheless, every one of us wants to evolve consciously or unconsciously. And that is only possible through change – whether positive or negative, whether they are triggered by us or by external influences. Of course, we prefer positive change rather than negative. But if we succeed, and if we are willing to make changes, we can ultimately only grow and bring us and the world a good deal further. With this in mind, I wish you happy Pentecost days, lots of fun and enjoyment in our city, as well as the courage to recognize changes as something positive and vital to enable progress and development.

    Yours sincerely

    Gerd Maisch, Lord Mayor

    44ppmmAfter a devastating major fire in 1693, which also destroyed the city’s archives, the citizen tried to reestablish law and order. Amongst others, they took note of »unknown kindhear- ted people« who donated 300 Gulden (old currency) for the »Mayenlauf« (May-running-event); »From the interest rate you shall give the schoolchildren paper, twines (»Nesteln«) and red ribbons in the month of May«.

    Furthermore, all citizens in earthly or sacred positions as well as the constables (policing authorities), received wine as a gift on this day.

    The oldest record of the Maientag can be found in an account book of the hospital, where you can read in the entry of May 25th, 1687, that »the children ran for paper«. Most impressive is the phrasing in the journal of the city’s court, where it was decided on the 15th of April 1706, that each year, the city shall »lead the children into May« if not prohibited by war or large migration.

    Maientag is the oldest secular celebration in the city. It dates back to a school celebration, probably in connection with the founding of the Latin school donated and celebrated each year, possibly already around 1400. At that time, the Latin pupils together with their teachers, to whom also tea- chers and pupils of the German school later joined, moved to the Egelsee in Vaihingen, where they were allowed to spend a whole day playing and dancing. The paper run, with which one could win the valuable writing paper, was always an important part, as well as the cutting of rods (green branches), which were carried into the city in the evening. Such festivals, origina- ting from the Late Middle Ages are also verified in Nürtingen, Ravensburg and Lauffen at the Neckar (where the festival is no longer celebrated).

    At the latest in the 18th century, the school festival deve- loped into a celebration of the whole citizenship, in which young and old entertained themselves at the Egelsee, and which attracted more and more visitors from abroad to the city.
