With all of the Fasching festivals happening in Germany, it can be hard to pick what to do next!
We created a map with pushpins for all of our go-see-do’s and overlaid it with all of the event locations, and Donaueschingen in the Black Forest (Schwarzwald in German) was the winner for this weekend.
The town is pretty small, but there are a few must sees like the Donauquelle, and proximity to Baden-Wurttemberg’s high point Mt Feldberg, definitely worth making the weekend run.
The parade itself is pretty small, best bet is to skip it and get a spot along the edge of the bonfire early. The fireworks and bonfire was pretty amazing to see, with the witches leaping through the bonfire over and over.
A few after-party adult beverages at the Hotel Lindau with our friends Bruce and Kyoko, and off to snowshoe Mt Feldberg tomorrow!
