Carnival in Munich - Fasching Parade in Munich 2020 | Visit Munich | Germany Travel Blog

Updated: Jun 5

Every year in February, the city of Munich turns into Party land and celebrates the festivity of Carnival. In the German state of Bavaria, Carnival is called “Fasching”. We attended the Fasching in Munich this year.

“Damische Ritte” means foolish Knight

We had been to Carnival in Cologne, Germany and also in Lucerne, Switzerland and to be honest, we weren’t expecting that Munich also has a big carnival. Obviously, it’s not like the famous Carnival of Cologne but still we were very excited.

Day of the dead Parade in Munich 2020

This year, in 2020, the Fasching parade started on Sunday, February 16 at 1.13 PM. The Parade started from Kreuzstrasse near Sendlinger Tor and then passed by the famous pedestrian zone Neuhauserstrasse, Kauferinger Straße to Marienplatz.

The pedestrian has blocked with a rope from both sides and the way in the center has been created for the participants. The crowd was standing behind the rope.

The event has been organised by a club “Damische Ritte” which means foolish Knight. There were around 53 groups with over 1000 members participating in the parade.The parade group included big themed trucks associated with different musical bands, fictional movies and characters, historical associations and political parties.

We came around 12 PM to Kreuzstrasse and selected the perfect spot on the footpath to welcome and cheer the Parade.

When we arrived, almost all the participants were there with their trucks but the audience was still coming.

We would highly suggest to come earlier to spot a perfect place otherwise It gets really crowded.

Finally the Parade started at 1.13 PM. The parade was led by Damish and their Duke Casimir on the wooden horse with a sword. It was followed by 30- 40 Damian knights.
