Cologne Carnival 2019 - Thursday, 28th February 2019 till Wednesday, 6th March 2019

Join the high spirited Germans as they celebrate their cultural street carnival as they parade, march, dance their way around Cologne. The pinnacle of Carnival celebrations in Cologne is the six-day street carnival known as the “Crazy Days”, where there is no end of traditional sessions, balls and parades throughout the city. People celebrate, sing and dance in the halls, pubs and restaurants.
On Weiberfastnacht Thursday the streets fill up with people in costumes. At exactly 11:11 a.m., the street Carnival is officially opened by the mayor of Cologne. Carnival Friday sees numerous sessions and balls take place in the evening time.
After a Carnival brunch on Saturday with K├Âlsch beer, there is a performance at the bivouac of the Carnival societies with a military tradition at the Neumarkt. There is a Ghost parade in the evening. Street food is plentiful throughout the nights at the local markets and cafes.
On Carnival Sunday the school and neighbourhood parades march through the city centre, featuring costumed school groups and original masquerades. People bring small presents to hand to the local children in a gesture of goodwill.
The high point of the carnival is the big parade on Rose Monday. The floats begin to parade through the city and participants blow kisses to the costumed crowds. Carnival Tuesday sees more parades with groups of costumed revellers in the suburbs. The celebrations go on until midnight, when the straw figure called the “Nubbel” is buried or burned. The festival concludes on Ash Wednesday with more celebrations and large dinner celebrations all over the city.
