Shrovetide in Frankfurt

Pulls, Parties and Costumes

Die Narren sind los! Auch in diesem Jahr wird in Frankfurt und Umgebung das närrische Treiben noch einmal etwas anders gefeiert, als wir es kennen. Umzüge, Partys, spezielle Führungen und Feiern – all das wird es 2022 leider immer noch nicht geben. Deshalb gibt es in diesem Jahr in unserem Special auch andere Tipps als in den Vorjahren - in der Hoffnung, dass wir Euch 2023 an dieser Stelle wieder die schönsten Umzüge und kultigsten Faschings-Partys in Frankfurt und der Region präsentieren dürfen:

Removals in Frankfurt and surroundings

When the numerous associations in their elaborately designed floats drive along the various parade routes and throw candies and small gifts into the crowd, when music bands or dance guards get the audience in the mood and many an original costume is presented, then not only the participants of the carnival parades, but also many thousands of visitors gladly brave even the bad weather or the low temperatures!

Also in 2022, the carnival parades will unfortunately not be able to take place. In Frankfurt are both the Römer-Erstürmung, the children's procession and the Frankfurt Fastnachtszug, as well as the procession through Klaa Paris canceled. And also in other cities such as Wiesbaden or Mainz, the traditional parades unfortunately do not take place.

After all - the carnival stronghold Mainz offers after the cancellation of the big Rosenmontagsumzug all fools and Närrinnen at least a colorful digital program. You can find all the info HERE

On TV you can also this year vigorously celebrate carnival. Our tips are:
