What´s up in Munich
Fasching / 08.02.2013
Fasching Carnaval in München Open air Party food and Beer.
During the last three crazy days (on Fasching Sunday, on Rose Monday and on Shrove Tuesday - this year February 10, 11 and 12) the pedestrian area in the city center around Marienplatz is turned into a gigantic open air party zone with live music, fancy dresses and dancing. Climax is "München Narrisch" on February 10.
One of the highlights of the Munich Fasching is the dance of the market women on the "Viktualienmarkt"
(Victuals Market) at 11 a.m. on Shrove Tuesday. The market women rehearse for it already months before.
So, now try out the Munich Fasching. You need no expensive costume. Luxurious costumes are the exception here. All you need is a good mood and you will have a lot of fun during the carnival season in Munich.
I will start with the Question what is Fasching:
pre-Lenten festivities celebrated in grand style in mostly the predominantly catholic regions of the German-speaking countries. The Rhineland has its Karneval, Austria, Bavaria and Berlin calls theirs Fasching, and the German Swiss celebrate Fastnacht.
