Description

Travel back in time to the beautiful medieval town of Villingen and join one of the oldest carnival events in the country. The Narrozunft (carnival guild) dates its foundation to the year 1584 and has continued year after year to bring joy and a great deal of masks to the participants that arrive from the entire Black Forest region. Among the large and colourful parade surrounded by knights, princes and princesses, it is the Narro (fools) who steal the spotlight. Their clothing is painted with animals, flowers, and various figures while their masks are carved from limewood - fairy tale images during a magnificent procession.
