PIPES & DRUMS, MILITARY AND BRASS MUSIC - THE BIGGEST TATTOO IN GERMANY IN BERLIN

The term "tattoo" comes from the Dutch word "tap toe" (meaning "to close the tap" or "Zapfenstreich"). With the pronunciation of this traditional military command by the commander, the taps were once closed, thus initiating the night's rest in the quarters. This signal was given with a musical instrument. The English language then formed the word "tattoo" from it. Due to the traditional custom of the musical accompaniment at that time, the word "Tattoo" was assigned the worldwide known meaning of a military music festival.
