These Photos Will Make You Want to Go to Cologne Pride

Cologne CarnivalAfter visiting Cologne a few times in the past six months, it’s quickly climbed up my list of favorite German cities. So a few weeks back, with Cologne’s annual Carnival approaching, I booked myself train tickets for the long weekend. The Cologne Carnival (or Koeln Karneval, auf Deutsch) is the biggest event in the city each year.

From speaking to friends who live in Cologne, the annual Carnival usually ranks among the best things to do in the city. So, having fallen for the city last year, I made a point to visit during their biggest event. Even if I was skeptical of what Carnival would be like, in the end it turned out to be a fun, easy-going, non-stop party.

The Cologne Carnival is more than just a weekend festival, though. It kicks off with events the week before, but the biggest party is the Rose Monday Parade (Der Koelner Rosenmontagszug).
