Geisterzug 2016

February 2016

Cologne is a carnivalesque epicenter and the Geisterzug is one of the parades during the carnival season around Rose Monday. As an alternative parade to the common folklore, the Geisterzug is more like a demonstration, often with serious political issues and without any pomp. The loose organization and the informality give the parade a touch of anarchy, which makes the event interesting not only for carnival fans!
