Cologne Carnival, Germany, 24 February – 2 March 2022


Cologne Carnival 2022 – The largest carnival in Germany

24 February – 2 March 2022



BOOK HOTEL FOR THIS EVENT Things to do in Cologne - Tours and Sightseeings

The session and street carnival in NRW will be largely cancelled in 2022.

Many classic carnival sessions and parades have already been cancelled or taken in a scaled-down version.

Please be sure to follow the current Corona Protection Ordinance regulations for fun activities.

Cologne Carnival

is one of the biggest and most famous in Germany.

Carnival has been celebrated in Cologne for centuries, and today there are over 160 carnival societies, which all organize carnival festivities.

Officially Cologne Carnival kicks off on 11 November at 11:11, but it’s the last five days – called crazy days – that most people think of when talking about the Cologne Carnival.



Main Dates of Cologne Carnival for 2022

  • Crazy Days: 24th February – 1st March 2022
  • Weiberfastnacht (Shrove Thursday): 24th February 2022
  • Rosenmontagszug (Rose Monday Parade): 28th February 2022




More about Cologne Carnival

Anyone who has visited Cologne outside of Carnival time would find the city hard to recognise with the metamorphosis at this crazy time of year.

There are parties everywhere – in the streets, pubs and public squares – with everyone dressed in bright costumes.

Your costume will probably be more fun than fancy – it’s worn to keep you warm as much as to show you are joining in the carnival spirit!

Closing times for bars and pubs don’t exist during the festival, meaning that a whole lot of fun takes place over these five days.

When raising a glass, forget Prost; the carnival greeting is Alaaf!

It all starts with a day for the ladies  – Weiberfastnacht (Shrove Thursday) – where you’ll see women in fancy dress heading for the Alter Markt, where Carnival officially opened by the Dreigestirn (the Prince, the Peasant, and the Virgin)



The climax is the parade through the city centre on Rose Monday.

It begins at 10:30, a route of 6 km, has over 70 decorated floats and takes over 3 hours.

The float participants throw flowers, sweets, and other small gifts to the crowds.

Maybe you’ll catch a bottle of the city’s famous Eau de Cologne.



Hotel Tips

Where to stay during Cologne Carnival?

Carnival is one of the busiest times in Cologne, so book as early as you can.

Enjoy local hospitality at the small, family-run hotel, Mauritius Komforthotel.

It’s located in the Old Town, and only a minutes walk away from the Dom and the central train station.

Just one of many options as Cologne has over 250 hotels.

Check out all hotels in Cologne here


Getting to Cologne

Cologne is on the Rhine in West Germany.

It’s easily accessible by road and train and by Cologne-Bonn Airport.

You can quickly get to the city from the airport by its good rail and bus links.

Link; https://www.cologne-bonn-airport.com/en/parking-arrival/bus-rail-services.html

Cologne has an excellent public transport network of buses, trams, and subway.

Frankfurt and Dusseldorf Airports are alternative options with good rail connections to Cologne.

Cologne

More about Cologne

This 2,000-year-old city on the banks of the Rhine River is the country’s oldest city.

Its most famous landmark is the Cologne Cathedral (The Dom), a twin-spired example of High Gothic architecture.

Much of Cologne was destroyed in World War II, and the Old Town you see today has been faithfully rebuilt.

Visit a local “Brauhaus” (brewery) for some hearty German food and wash it down with a “Kolsch” (the local brew).

Hvar Island, Croatia

Hvar Island, Croatia



BOOK HOTEL ON HVAR ISLAND



Hvar island

is set just off the Dalmatian coast of Croatia in the Adriatic Sea.

It’s a wonderful island that will appeal to many different tastes – great for hiking, but it’s also the perfect destination for a relaxing holiday too with its wonderful weather.

And you can combine any visit with culture, history and sightseeing because there are several historic and beautiful towns to visit.

vineyards_hvar_island

This long, thin island features beautiful rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves and pine-clad hillsides that rival anywhere in southern Turkey or Italy.

Large selection of Hotels

In addition to many independent accommodation offerings – bed and breakfast types – the island of Hvar has a large selection of hotels.

The two main places to stay are Hvar Town and Stari Grad, and in the former, there are around 130 properties.

Traditionally, hotels have been a little more basic and affordable on Hvar than on the mainland, but this is changing now as the island becomes more popular.


yacht_hotel_hvar

The boutique Riva Hvar Yacht Harbour Hotel is perfectly located if you’re arriving by boat or yacht.


hvar_beach_hotel

Check out the fabulous Amfora Hvar Grand Beach Resort (pictured above).

Check it out here

There are also some cheaper alternatives and apartments to choose from.

So there should be something for any budget.

An overview here >>

Stari Grad has far fewer places to stay but could make a nice, quieter alternative to Hvar Town.

The majority of places in Stari Grad, and a large number in Hvar Town, are actually self-catering apartments rather than full-service hotels.

stari_grad_croatia

Stari Grad

Set on the northern side of the island of Hvar, opposite Hvar Town, Stari Grad is the other major tourist destination on the island.

Those who have visited claim that Stari Grad doesn’t hold quite the same appeal as Hvar Town, but if you’re interested in history and culture, then you should definitely take the time to visit it anyway.

The town’s history is impressive after all – it is the oldest town in Croatia and one of the oldest in Europe.

It was settled by Greeks who came here from the island of Paros in 384 BC.

Later the Romans inhabited the ancient town, and later still the Slav people.

The Slavs named the town Hvar, but when the island’s capital was moved to what’s now known as Hvar Town, this town became known as ‘old city’ – Stari Grad.

Stari Grad Plain

Today the town is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Stari Grad Plain, which is an agricultural landscape recognised by UNESCO for its cultural importance.

Those first Greek colonists set up the ancient agricultural plain in the 4th century BC, and today it is still used in largely the same way as back then.

It’s amazing to think that the walls that divide the land, and the water collection system, actually dates back to Greek times and has been meticulously maintained over a period of twenty-four centuries!

You can hike into and around this area to get a look at the ancient way of agriculture yourself.

The main crops cultivated back then and still to this day are vines and olives.

While exploring, you should look out for the remains of several Roman period buildings, as well as a couple of Illyrian forts.

cafe_stari_grad

Town Architecture

The old town is centred around the agricultural plain, while there was a newer section of the town built by the Venetians in the 13th century.

The Venetians offered protection to the people of Stari Grad as long as the town on the southern side of the island (now Hvar Town) was expanded so that the Venetian fleet could use it.

The Turks attacked Stari Grad in the 16th century, and many buildings were destroyed, but rebuilding quickly began.

Now you’ll find a good selection of buildings with medieval Renaissance architecture dating from just after that period.

There are numerous churches to visit, and on the edges of town is a castle built as a fortified summer residence for Petar Haktorovic, a Croatian poet.

Today it is a well preserved Renaissance-style building with an interior courtyard that contains a sea-water fish pond.



Getting to Hvar Island

There’s no airport on the island of Hvar so you’ll have to arrive by boat.

If you’re chartering a luxury yacht around the Adriatic, this scenic island should be one of your planned stops.

There is a yacht marina named Riva in Hvar Town or several other places you could stop offshore.

Most of the visitors coming to Hvar will arrive on the ferry from the mainland.

There are two options – the slower car ferry takes around two hours and arrives near the ancient town of Stari Grad, or the faster hydrofoil service that takes about an hour and arrives at Hvar Town.

This service comes from Split on the mainland.

Suppose you prefer a more personalised, luxury service. In that case, there are a couple of other options – the Dalmatia-Express is a 24-hour boat service from Split or the airport, or there’s the Adriatic-Express which offers a similar high-speed transport option.

weather_climat

Weather and climate

Hvar is hugely sunny and benefits from a wonderful Mediterranean climate.

On average, in a year, the town of Hvar has 2,800 hours of sunshine and 7.7 hours a day, compared to Dubrovnik, which has a respectable 7.2 hours.

July and August are the busiest months because they have the best weather – an average high of 29C and low of 21C, and only minimal rainfall.

June’s temperatures are very similar, while September is just a couple of degrees cooler but does experience more rainfall.

For a quieter atmosphere come in the winter; it’s mild, but typical of a Mediterranean climate, this is the wettest time of the year.

Main Attractions on the Island

hvar_island_450

Hvar Town

Known simply as Hvar but often called Hvar Town or Hvar City to distinguish it from the island of Hvar, this city is the largest on the island and its top tourist destination.

The beautiful streets, architecture, coastal location, and surrounding hills and mountains make Hvar Town a very scenic place, and it’s busy in the peak summer season without being too overcrowded.

When visiting Hvar Town, here are some of the top things to see and do.

hvar_town_square

The Town Square

The giant town square (known locally as Pjaca – meaning Piazza) is the heart of the town, and it’s easy to see why!

It is the largest town square in the Dalmatia region, measuring 4,500 square metres, the whole of which was paved way back in 1780.

Various buildings are lining the square, but all beautiful in their ways – they date from the period between the 15th and 17th centuries and include St Stephen’s Cathedral.

This cathedral has soma parts that date back as far as the 14th century, but with additions from the following three centuries, the cathedral has many different infusions of architecture.

Other significant buildings to see include the Bishop’s Palace, the Paladini Palace, and the Hektorovic Palace, which remains unfinished.

The Loggia (Loza) is a magnificent building, and it has more Venetian influences in its architecture. Along with the clock tower, this is all that remains of the former Governor’s Palace.

hvar_fortress

Town Walls and Fortress

The Town Walls of Hvar date originally from the 13th century though there have been some alterations and additions in later centuries.

You can get a view of the walls if you look up toward the fortress as they stretch from here down to the square, where some houses and buildings have been built into the walls.

The fortress itself, known as the Spanish Fort, dates from the 1580s when a new defence had to be built following the destruction of the old one due to a gunpowder explosion.

franciscan_monastery_hvar

Outside the Town

If you have time to venture a little farther outside of Hvar Town, there are several other charming places to visit.

To the south of town, a cape is a Franciscan Monastery and church, built in the late 15th century to the Renaissance style.

There is also a Renaissance style country home to the east of the town, built in 1530.

This is a lovely historic home to visit and was the summer home of Hanibal Lucic.

You can visit the house as it is preserved as a museum and set among beautiful gardens.

Makarska City – The Heart of the Riviera

Makarska City – The Heart of the Riviera



BOOK HOTEL IN MAKARSKA Things to do in Makarska - Tours and Sightseeings

makarska_city740

Croatia’s Makarska Riveria has close to twenty towns and villages along its 60 kilometre stretch of pristine coastline, with the city of Makarska its heart.

This is the hub of the Riviera, so you’ll find a busier atmosphere here compared to some of the small fishing villages where less than 100 people live permanently.

But while Makarska itself may be classed as a city, you shouldn’t expect a bustling metropolis; really, it’s quite small, with only around 14,000 residents.

Like the rest of the Riviera, the city is a popular destination, but not overly so. Tourists have been coming here for years, but it hasn’t been overdeveloped with huge resort-style hotels.

There are some larger hotels, but generally, the pace of life is actually quite slow. While there are over 200 places to stay along the Riviera, many of these accommodations are smaller and more individual.

So if you’re looking for a beautiful place to visit that has tourist facilities yet retains plenty of its traditional appeal, Makarska could be the place for you!



Things to See and Do

Makarska is an attractive city centred around a horseshoe-shaped bay that serves as the city’s harbour.

You can walk along the promenade around the length of the bay, watching the yachts and ferries come and go, or sit at one of the many bars or cafes, or even do some shopping in the fashionable boutiques.

A 30-minute ferry ride from the harbour gets you to the town of Sumartin on the island of Brac and makes this a nice day trip if you want to see more of the surrounding region.

Makarska Old Town is where you’re likely to spend the majority of your time. Typical of many old towns, you’ll find narrow, stone-paved streets here, leading to the main market square where a fruit and flower market is often taking place.

Visit the old church or head inside one of the few museums.

The Franciscan monastery is a popular and well-known attraction, featuring museum-like exhibits, including its famous seashell collection.

A park on the peninsula that forms part of the horse-shoe -bay, on a slight hill, is a lovely place to walk to enjoy the views over the harbour, the city, and out to sea.

If you enjoy walking, there are plenty of opportunities to walk in the Biokovo Mountains too.



Hotels and Apartments

Among the most popular places to stay in Makarska are its many apartments.

Apartments offer a great alternative to hotels if you like to have a little more living space and you’re not looking for full service.

The 4-star Luxury City Centre Apartments Sulenta is just one option out of many, featuring modern and bright apartments set in the heart of the old town.

For those who prefer to enjoy the facilities and good service, there are several 4-star hotels to choose from.

Hotel Meteor is probably the closest you’ll get to a resort-style hotel on the Makarska Riviera.

It’s a large place with indoor and outdoor pools, a restaurant, sauna and health club and is just off the beach.
