Carnival House

A carnivalesque November.

As you already know, carnivals are the city’s most momentous festivities, along with Christmas celebrations. Throughout the month of November, residents take to the streets dressed in their finest costumes and bring the town hall and main roads, such as Köningsallee, to a halt. But that’s not all. You can visit this museum year-round and marvel at exhibitions of the most important artwork from these carnivals. You will find historic outfits that have played a key role in this region’s folklore, as well as some of the most original and surprising costumes that have even won prizes. Year after year, the prize-giving committee gathers here to decide on the city’s best costume, as well as the most original floats of the yearly parade. This collection displays all kinds of objects relating to the carnival, and the museum has become one of the most popular attractions the city has to offer. Don’t miss out!
