Cologne Women Carnival Day (Weiberfastnacht) 2019

Where: Cologne (Köln), ,
When: Thursday, February 28, 2019
Cologne’s Women’s Carnival Day (Weiberfastnacht) is part of The Crazy Days carnival. In the early morning, the streets are filled with young women and teenagers dressed in colorful cloths.

On 11:11 o’clock the carnival starts with parades and various events. In the evening, lots of parties are held in the bars and clubs where the women take their revenge from the men in a humorous way.

If a man meets a woman that approaches with pursed lips in one of the parties, he has to be prepared to get a ”festival kiss” named Butzie. But if she approaches with scissors, the man should be prepared to loose his tie (it will be cut).

Due to the numerous visitors during the carnival days and the high demand for accommodations it is recommended to check hotel rates and book rooms well in advance.

The Women Carnival events create a unique joy atmosphere.

Germany background and overview
As Europe's largest economy and second most populous nation, Germany remains a key member of the continent's economic, political, and defense organizations. European power struggles immersed Germany in two devastating World Wars in the first half of the 20th century and left the country occupied by the victorious Allied powers of the US, UK, France, and the Soviet Union in 1945. With the advent of the Cold War, two German states were formed in 1949: the western Federal Republic of Germany (FRG) and the eastern German Democratic Republic (GDR). The democratic FRG embedded itself in key Western economic and security organizations, the EC, which became the EU, and NATO, while the Communist GDR was on the front line of the Soviet-led Warsaw Pact. The decline of the USSR and the end of the Cold War allowed for German unification in 1990. Since then, Germany has expended considerable funds to bring Eastern productivity and wages up to Western standards. In January 1999, Germany and 10 other EU countries introduced a common European exchange currency, the euro.
