Crazy carnival days.

Each year in Munich, the month of February brings a whirlwind of music, costumes and dances, in the guise of the Munich Carnival. The city of Munich certainly knows how to party. The festival lasts three days, and the city lets loose, on Sunday, Monday and finally Shrove Tuesday. It's a fun event for all, with parades and masked balls organized by various professional organisations. In parallel with the carnival there are actually over 1,000 events and dances that take place, lasting several weeks, organized by major theatres and breweries in Munich. On the last Sunday, the festivities take place around Marienplatz. On the Tuesday, it's time for the apotheosis on the Viktualienmarkt with the Dirndl, the "Dance of the good women of the market." A fantastic event when women in traditional dress dance and sing their hearts out together with the public. For this alone, it's worth seeing!
