11th November: Carnival begins

Carnival in Cologne, Germany

On the 11 November, up to 70,000 carnival revellers will come together on Heumarkt square to celebrate the opening of the new carnival season.

Revellers from Cologne and carnival goers from the rest of the world, together with the three chief carnival figures (Prince, Peasant and Maiden who make up the Cologne Dreigestirn – the trio – and who are the highest representatives of the Cologne carnival) and traditional Cologne carnival bands will transform the square in the centre of the city into a carnivaltastic madhouse.
