Munich's Fasching festival climax next week

Munich's Fasching festival climax next weekBackpackers who find themselves in Germany at this time of year should take advantage of the Fasching extravaganza in Munich.

The event occurs throughout January and February with the culmination of festivities traditionally occurring on Shrove Tuesday (24th February 2009).

During the two months of carnival fun, hostel-staying backpackers will be able to take part in one of the many balls and parades in the city.

Fancy-dress and musical performances form part of the packed itinerary during the Fasching season with public organizations putting on entertainment events for all ages.

Travelers intending to travel to Munich in time for the final day will be able to head to Viktualienmarkt for the dance of the market women.

On Ash Wednesday the Fischbrunnen fountain is the place to go to witness locals queuing up to immerse their purses in the water feature.

Legend has it that by doing so, the purse will become full again.
