One of the three schools of wizardry
which sent champions to the
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
, the other two being
The headmaster of Durmstrang is Professor Karkaroff
and its champion is the Quidditch ace Viktor Krum
I can't find any separate references for 'durm' or 'strang' so I presume the name
is a spoonerism from the German phrase Sturm und Drang. I have seen Sturm und Drang translated into English as 'storm and stress', but der Drang more literally means 'push' or 'pressure'.
I suppose Karkaroff's involvement with the Dark Arts puts the students under lots of pressure!
