Travel to Germany for this year's Carnival

The celebrations are well known in the cities of Cologne, Düsseldorf and Mainz. But this festival is also celebrated in other parts of Germany. Only there you give the festival a different name. There it is called "Fastnacht" or "Mardi Gras".

The custom of celebrating carnival or carnival is very old. There were already carnival parades in the 13th century and a carnival king was elected. Carnival is a time to be really funny. You dress up and put on colorful clothes or masks.

The Swabian-Alemannic carnival is known as Fastnacht, where Fast(en)-Nacht means the eve of the Fastenzeit (lent). Variants of the name are Fasnacht, Fasnet, or Fasent. Fastnacht is held in Baden-Württemberg, parts of Bavaria, Alsace, German Switzerland, and Austrian Vorarlberg.
