About the Geisterzug tradition:
The German city of Cologne (Köln) is known for three things: eau de Cologne (i.e. perfume); the Kölsch style of beer (a uniquely crisp and clean top-fermented, cold-conditioned ale); and the biggest and most raucous Carnival celebration in Europe. This epic citywide party rages for 6 days and nights leading up to Lent. Unlike other Carnivals, whose big party is Mardi Gras, Cologne’s week-long celebration packs in so much debauchery that the city’s residents refer to it as the “5th season.” Each day features a themed parade and on Saturday night a macabre procession called the Geisterzug (”Ghost Train”) winds its way through the city center.
So don your craziest garb, fill a glass of kölsch, and we‘ll go ghost parading. All aboard!
