Handcarved masks for carnival.

The weird and wonderful scenes of the Alemannic fasnacht carnival are dominated by the elaborate costumes and grimacing wooden masks of the witches and devils that parade the streets. These masks are hand-made by professional mask carvers, who still practise their craft in many towns in the region today. They lovingly carve intricate facial features and shape the mask to the face of its wearer. You can watch mask carvers at work at the Vogtsbauernhof Open Air Museum in Gutach (Schwarzwaldbahn ...

Mainz Carnival

The Mainz carnival procession on Rose Monday stretches for some 6.5 kilometres, making it one of the region's longest. The evening carnival show is broadcast live on German TV. Both events have a strong political streak, and politicians' misadventures are mercilessly satirised. The crazy weekend kicks off with Europe's biggest children's masked parade on Carnival Saturday.

Jesters and wild women: Düsseldorf carnival

Carnival time in Düsseldorf is a charming blend of local tradition and typical Rhenish exuberance. Every year, there is plenty of fun and high jinx at more than 300 carnival gatherings, receptions and costume balls in the city. The celebrations kick off with Women's Day, during which the city's women storm the town hall and take the mayor hostage. He usually manages to buy his freedom by giving them a few bottles of ...

'Completely crazy' or 'out of its mind' don't even come close to describing the scenes in the cathedral city the week before Ash Wednesday.
