It is our first "Fasching" in Munich, but I hear that it is much closer to the Venetian Carnivale than to Germany's Cologne Fasching.  Today, Shrove Tuesday, has people all over the city in elaborate costumes.  Think Mardi Gras and you have an idea of what is happening here.  There are any number of festivities happening in the city building up to this evening which marks the end of the festivities.  Thousands will be in the Viktualienmarkt in the city centre to join with the market women singing and dancing among the fruit and vegetable stands.  Other places Munchener's can go to "party" are listed here:
