On 26-OCT, the German Swatch Club had organized a halloween event at Burg Frankenstein.  Yes, this castle inspired Mary Shelley to the book that we all know and love.  To commemorate the event, a special packaging of the Mummia halloween gent (GM900) was issued.  The packaging is limited to 36 pcs and it is not numbered but personalized:

A great idea.  Here is a picture of the back of the packaging.  Participants also received a rain jacket (fortunately, the weather was great!), a special pass, and a cute halloween headdress:

At 17:07, we met a the shuttle parking lot and prepared / dressed up for the journey:

Upon arrival, everybody was dressed up properly:

First, we had a nice reception with a welcome drink:

At the castle, there is an official(!) marriage chapel, so Annette and Holger reconfirmed their marriage:

At 7pm, we had an excellent halloween dinner.  The room was nicely decorated:

After the dinner, it was show time!  We started our visiting tour around the castle.  Lots of scary and spooky characters appeared on the scene:


Does Annette look scared?  I don't think so!

The scenery included lots of well known places:

The evening finished at around midnight with an appearance of all characters on stage dancing to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'  (we all know the video, right?).





We had a lot of fun at the event, thanks to Semra and the others from Swatch The Club for the excellent organization.  I am looking forward to see everybody soon again!

Thanks to Susanne Vierkötter for some pictures.
Here are Holger Brinkmann's photos and impressions from the event.
