Carnival in Grainau


The "Grainauer Fosenacht" - that means original carnival tradition

For centuries we find the "Fosenacht" throughout the Bavarian region nowhere so vivid and original as in the "Werdenfelser Land".

In our rural areas the forms of expressions of the carnival has a lot of old and obtained customs. Each of the "Maschkera" carries a wood carved "Larve", which is often in family ownership for decades, even centuries. These rigid, stylized wooden faces have a very peculiar charm.

The carnival in Grainau is therefore an experience for young and old - and of course, to watch and join in the celebrations! Do you want to come to our "Fosenacht" (carnival in local dialect)?
