Carnival in Frankfurt

Movements, parties and costumes

Die Narren sind los! Auch in diesem Jahr wird in Frankfurt und Umgebung das närrische Treiben wieder ausgiebig gefeiert. Umzüge, Partys, spezielle Führungen und Feiern – wer Fasnacht liebt, der kommt nicht nur in den Karnevalshochburgen voll und ganz auf seine Kosten. Wo Ihr in Frankfurt und dem Umland mit Freunden oder der Familie in die bunte Welt der Fastnachtsumzüge eintauchen kann, auf Partys die fünfte Jahreszeit ausgelassen zelebrieren kann und wo man dafür Kostüme kaufen oder leihen kann, haben wir Euch mal in diesem Special zusammengestellt:

Moves in Frankfurt and surroundings

When the numerous clubs drive along the various train routes in their elaborately designed wagons and throw sweets and small gifts into the crowd, when music bands or dance gardens bring the audience into the mood and some original costumes are presented, then not only the participants of the carnival processions, but also many thousands of visitors like to defy the bad weather or the low temperatures!
