Karneval in Aachen

There is always a reason to have a party in Germany. Karneval, means carnival in German. In Nordrhein Westfallen (NRW), people here always celebrate Karneval before Lent, during January and February. In NRW (Cologne, Dusseldorf, Aachen, etc), the Karneval starts on Fett Donnerstag (one day after Ash Wednesday) and the parade is held on Rosenmontag (Rose Monday).

People are getting crazy here, and they can dress like anyone or anything they want. Everybody drinks on the street and keeps yelling. Well, if you feel like bored, then I think it's not bad to join them.

In Aachen, there are some places you can have great parties like in Stawag building, Eurogress, Karstadt and some other clubs.
I was planning to celebrate in Cologne or Dusseldorf, cos they have huge huge parties there. But on Thursday, I had to work until 2 PM, so I was kinda tired and not in the mood. I have to take a train from Aachen to Cologne/Dusseldorf, and at least it takes an hour and it'll be hundreds of people on the train. Next year, I won't miss it :)

P.S. The guy on the first picture is the prince of the Karneval
