Carnival in Württemberg

The people of Rottweil dress up in historical carnival costumes on Carnival Monday and Shrove Tuesday – because this is the only time it's allowed. The occasion is the Rottweil Narrensprung (Fools' Parade), a thrilling spectacle that takes place on 20 and 21 February this year.

Carnival festivities are also in full swing at Lake Constance. There are many parades and events here, such as the Shrove Tuesday celebrations in the town of Constance, which are another highlight of the 'fifth season' in Württemberg.
