+++ Coronavirus: For carnival activities, the requirements of infection protection already laid down in the Corona Protection Ordinance apply, so that especially carnival balls, carnival parades, party formats and sociable carnival events may not take place without observing the distance offer. Smaller carnival cultural events are permitted, such as concerts that meet the generally applicable requirements of the Corona Protection Ordinance as well as the hygiene concepts.
Carnival removals will not be possible. Other events in the outdoor session must be designed to comply with the requirements of the Corona Protection Ordinance and will therefore differ in their basic features from the events of the last sessions. In the event of any new information, it will be published here.
