Goißelschnalzen = whip cracking
The Goißelschnalzer have been around since 1986, when the group was formed under the leadership of Franz Hämmerle, who was then the Vorplattler and honorary board member. Under his leadership, several boys came together and learned the Goißelschnalzen from their friends in the Wangen traditional costume association. Since then, the Goißelschnalzer have been an integral part of the active group’s performances.
