Cologne, a major city in Germany

  • In medieval Germany, the ancient game of Stichstock, a forerunner of modern Quidditch, was popular. The players had to puncture an inflated dragon bladder that was tied to a pole with the sharpened ends of their broomsticks. The bladder was defended by another player. The game died out in the 14th century.[1]
  • Quidditch became popular on the continent, and thus probably also in Germany, by the early 15th century. The Heidelberg Harriers are a well-known professional German Quidditch team.[2] Their seven-day match against the Holyhead Harpies of 1953 is widely reckoned one of the finest ever seen. After the Harpies beat the Harriers, Harriers' Captain Rudolf Brand proposed to the Harpies' Captain and was hit over the head with her Cleansweep Five.
  • The broomstick company of Ellerby and Spudmore resides in the Black Forest, but their brooms were never successful in professional Quidditch.
  • An illuminated manuscript, dating back to early Medieval Ages that depicts three warlocks dismounting from their brooms was found in Germany.[3]
