This portal is great for a virtual tour of the Fasching phenomenon. It features links to Karnival and Fasching pages all over Germany. You will find local news from Cologne, Aachen, Mainz, Duesseldorf, and many other towns. There is a guide to events, music and festivities, a history section and a search function.
