A threefold thundering Helau
Carnival in Mainz
The Mainz Carnival is one of the largest and most traditional events in the city. It is also described as the fifth season. The first Rose Monday parade took place in 1838 and today, 180 years later, it still has great significance for the Mainzers. In addition to Cologne and Dusseldorf, Mainz is one of the strongholds of the Rhineland Carnival. The importance of the carnival is also reflected in the cityscape, for example, by sculptures but also the Fastnachstbrunnen, which is located on the Schillerplatz. For carnival enthusiasts, there is also the year-round open Carnival Museum, which can be found since 2004 in Mainz.
