Live view from the Marienplatz webcam

You´re not imagining things. I was passing through Marienplatz last night and saw the group as well. Looked like a student group (but all dressed up in some kind of traditional garb), they played good music. I saw their "leader" make a speech with a champagne glass in his hand...was in a hurry so don´t know what it was all about either.

the coopers dance every seven years to keep away the plague, as memorialized in the bottom half of the glockenspiel on marienplatz. there's a thread from earlier linking to the schedule:

I'll tell you what they were doing:

Standing around,

drinking prosecco, beer and schnaps,

listening to music,

singing to music,

struggling through the crowds to find their friends,

wondering where they could go to take a pee.
