In the carnival strongholds, the street carnival in Cologne and Düsseldorf began on Thursday morning. Punctually at 11:11 am the foolish hustle and bustle began. In Cologne, the triumvirate of prince, farmer and maiden unleashed the revelers. In Düsseldorf, the Möhnen stormed the town hall.
The washerwomen attacked in Bonn. This tradition goes back to an early women’s movement: in 1824 the Beuel Women’s Committee met for the first time in Beuel, which is now part of Bonn. The Beuel washerwomen resisted patriarchy, male dominance and the associated exploitation of women.
For the first time in three years, the carnivalists can celebrate again without corona restrictions. Especially in Cologne, tens of thousands of revelers from abroad were expected. The police were there with more than 2000 officers on duty.
Weather on Shrove Monday
In terms of weather, no problems were initially expected. On Shrove Monday the weather will be overcast in Cologne, Düsseldorf and Mainz, with the sun barely visible. In addition, it is windy in Cologne with maximum temperatures of 4 degrees.
