H-Con 2: The Tails on Fire
HerbstCon is a different German furry convention held in the autumn.

H-Con is a furry convention currently held at the Petershof in Erbach, Odenwald, Hessen, Germany between the cities of Frankfurt and Heidelberg. The annual conference is hosted each autumn by the AFC-Group which also organised AYCE.

H-Con claims to be an "old-time" furry convention, where every participating fur becomes a part of the staff and the food supply is plentiful (all you can eat). The event is primarily organized by Atalon Deer of the H-Con Committee.

Past events[edit]

H-Con 1: The Forgotten Tails
  • H-Con 1: "The Forgotten Tails" took place in 2005 over October 2-3 and attracted about 45 furs.
  • H-Con 2: "The Tails on Fire" took place in 2006 over September 29-October 2, with 53 attendees. A "Dead Dog Night" after-party was held over October 2-3.
  • H-Con 3 "Tails from the Twilight World" took place in October 4-7, 2007 with the "Dead Dog Night" after-party to follow over October 7-8.[1] 48 participants stayed on site, plus 5 off-site and 4 day guests. 1070 kg of food and drinks were consumed during the con.

  • H-Con 6: "Tailbusters" took place in 2010 on a new and a little bigger location next to Bühl in the Black Forest, close to France. Since the convention was closer to the Swiss, H-Con got more furs from Switzerland. Due many requests the convention was now set up for a maximum of 60 furs.
