Friday fact #14: This country banned dancing on Good Friday

In Germany, dancing on Good Friday is actually illegal in 13 out of 16 states. Many nightclubs and music venues are forced to close down on this day.

The term used to describe “dancing ban” in Germany is Tanzverbot.

Places that hold events which disobey the ban can be fined more than £1,000.

So remember, next time you’re in Germany for the Easter weekend, don’t dance.
