27th Bischofsgrün Snowman Festival

For nearly 30 years, the town of Bischofsgrün in the Fichtelgebirge nature park has built probably the largest real snowman in Germany each year on carnival weekend – and this event is always celebrated in the climatic health resort on Carnival Monday. Jakob the giant snowman will be at the centre of the traditional open-air party, which is being held this year on 20 February. Many visitors are expected to attend, along with those who helped build the snowman.
