Carnival: Tasteless in Munich, more fun in Cologne

January 31, 2008

Cologne / Köln:A German rapper being ousted from a TV reality show for lifting his arm for the Hitler salute, carnival celebrations in Munich on the same day Auschwitz was liberated: there was no lack of news this week. We won’t go into detail here, the issues were widely covered in Israeli and Jewish media. Do see this Jewlicious article about the whole carnival in Germany issue, as it provides a little bit more insight.

By the way: Tomorrow is Weiberfastnacht, the official start of the carnival, or Karneval, season in Köln/Cologne. Or Fastelovend, as real Kölsche Jung would call it. Need a place to celebrate? Loreley, a Köln-themed restaurant and biergarten has Karneval parties all weekend. Kölle Alaaf!
