[edit] Information

The Fastnacht is one of the oldest and most traditional pre-Lenten carnival events. In Germany it is called the Fifth Season! It is still celebrated - with absolute authenticity - in the Black Forest region and in the city of Constance with old Carnival guilds and clubs. Historic handmade costumes and uniquely painted, hand-carved wooden masks are always the most distinctive aspect of the festivities.

In the city of Cologne the whole town participated in one magnificent parade, many dressed with original and funny costumes.

Off the Beaten Path: The Black Forest region known for its scenery, and the traditional cuckoo clock that was invented here in the 18th century by farmers affected from the typically long winter months. Culinary Delights includes the Black Forest Cake whose key ingredient for success is the local cherry schnapps and the Black Forest ham, whose aroma comes from smoking the region’s unique wood.
