Such a long word for such a fun time. A 'Junggesellenabschied' (bachelor fairwell) and 'Junggesellinnenabschied' (bachelorette fairwell) meet in the pedestrian zone for one last hurrah with friends.
This is the perfect time of year to see these small gatherings, funny costumes, and a great example of a fun custom. One of the highlights typically includes a basket filled with random things that the bachelor or bachelorette work to sell to on lookers or bar patrons. The proceeds are used to buy the group drinks for evening.
