Feb 10, 1823 First Rose Monday train in cologne set off
Today is a very special day, because exactly 200 years ago on 2/10/1823 the first Rose Monday train in cologne set off. Under the motto "Ascension to the throne of the hero carnival", the first Rose Monday procession moved around Neumarkt back then. In the Rose Monday March 2023, a vehicle reminiscent of the heroes of Carnival will be found. It will be a special carnival week in a special session.
200 years of Cologne Carnival.
