Celebrate in Germany

Do you like to party? Then you have come to just the right place. In this quiz we will be taking you on a short tour of some of Germany's bigger and smaller party venues. So style your hair and pick out your glad rags. And off we go...

Are you in fancy dress? You had better be, as our first stop is the Rhenish carnival, which attracts more than two million visitors to the strongholds in Cologne, Düsseldorf and Mainz each year. Fancy dress, confetti, the local Kölsch or Alt beer and sweets are a must. Plus there are a few other fun customs and traditions into the bargain.

Why are many women to be seen carrying scissors around town on the Thursday before carnival?

To cut confetti ready for the party
To cut other women's hair
To cut off men's ties
