Friday – June 8

If you’re ever in Cologne, you cannot miss out on this fantastic tradition! Carnival in Cologne is full of color, singing and fun. The “fifth season of the year” usually starts on November 11 at 11.11am, but we will bring it to you sooner. So, don’t forget to bring your costume on your trip! If you want to have the real Cologne Carnival experience, check out this guide. A typical Kölsch costume isn’t that hard to pull of. Simply, get a few red and white clothes (think “Where’s Waldo?”) and leave your worries at home, because, as we say in Cologne: “Et hätt noch immer jot jejange!” (“It always ended up well!”)
