Shrovetide in Frankfurt

Pulls, Parties and Costumes

Die Narren sind los! In diesem Jahr wird in Frankfurt und Umgebung das närrische Treiben etwas anders gefeiert, als wir es kennen. Umzüge, Partys, spezielle Führungen und Feiern – all das wird es 2021 leider nicht geben. Deshalb gibt es in diesem Jahr in unserem Special auch andere Tipps als in den Vorjahren - in der Hoffnung, dass wir Euch 2022 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 drive along the various procession routes in their elaborately designed floats and throw sweets 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 processions, but also many thousands of visitors are happy to brave even the bad weather or the low temperatures!

In 2021, 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 on 13 + 14.02., as well as the procession through Klaa Paris on 16.02.2021 canceled. And also in other cities such as Wiesbaden or Mainz, the traditional parades do not take place.

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

And with the big Online-Rudelsingen to the Weiberfastnacht you can come on 11.02. also at home properly in carnival mood. More info HERE

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

And with luck, we'll be able to celebrate and enjoy parades together again in 2022. Helau!!!
