Description

Eupen, the beautiful capital of Belgium’s Eastern Cantons plays host to a carnival with a distinguishable German style. The events start off with the Parade of the Old Ladies, followed by a large ceremony where the mayor of the town hands over the keys to the Carnival Prince. The children’s parade follows with thousands of young people dancing alongside their favourite fairytale characters such as Mickey Mouse, Tintin, or even Smurfs. The main event of the fiesta is of course the grand parade taking place on Rose Monday where you can expect a storm of paper flowers to invade the streets of the picturesque centre.
