When other countries like the U.S., Italy, Brazil, etc. celebrate carnivals, Germany has its own carvinal too! Germans call it Fasching or Karvenal. It is also called as Fastnacht or Fastnet. In short, we will just call it simply carnival. Witnessing carnivals in the different places and cities in Germany can be a vibrant and delightful experience. Each place has its own way of celebrating it and it is always a joyous and festive event.
Top of the cities in Germany which are famous for its carnival celebrations include Mainz, Cologne and Düsseldorf. Don’t miss to watch the Faschingszug or canival parade or maybe attend a Faschingsball (carnival ball). For sure you can see a lot of people celebrating on the streets with their colorful costumes with various motives and designs. Giant and beautifully decorated floats are always present in a carnival parade in Germany.
This is one of the celebrations I love in this country!
