The Cologne Carnival or “Kölner Karneval” is a great carnival that takes place for a few weeks every year in Cologne, Germany.

The Carnival of Cologne with its parades, balls and stage shows has a lot to offer to foreigners willing to discover the German culture. The official carnival is run by the “Festkomitee Kölner Karneval” or Cologne Carnival Celebration Committee.

You will find a lot of parades in the city districts, and a colorful parade on carnival Sunday.  So far the Cologne carnival is one the largest carnival I ever visited.

Experience The Amazing Carnival of Cologne

As I was traveling with my Erasmus friends from Osnabrueck to Cologne, we spent a great time at the carnival of Cologne.

The beautiful city of Cologne has to tell something about the amazing best days of the year in the dome city.

Every year between February and March, it is time to celebrate the carnival and during this period the city turns into madness.

Today in Cologne the carnival season starts…

That day is celebrated really well among big fan of the city and Germans.

People start by having an early morning preparing themselves for the celebration.

So if you want to celebrate the carnival of Cologne, be ready because it’s big!
