The ‘fifth season’ in Germany begins on Sunday, and Berlin is ready. The 15th Berlin Carnival Procession gets going on Sunday 19 February 2017 at 11:11 a.m., the traditional start time.
The colourful procession will move through Berlin City West from the lively Kurfürstendamm toward Wittenbergplatz. Around 1,000 participants in their costumes will proceed along the four-kilometre route.
This year’s event features a special show by Frank Zander, who has another reason to celebrate – it was his 75th birthday a few weeks ago. And of course we can expect to hear his smash hit ‘Nur nach Hause’.
Alongside Frank Zander, the singers Annemarie Eilfeld and U-Jean are on the agenda at the closing event on Wittenbergplatz. Entry is free.
