If you are a fan of German Karneval or Fastnacht, “Fastnacht in Franken” is a must; it’s televised on BR (Bayerischer Rundfunk) on February 10 at 12p.m. CT.
Since 1987 this live Fastnacht (carnival) show has been entertaining millions year after year on TV, first in Franconia, and later in all of Germany. There will be the traditional female carnival dancers, appearances by famous comic entertainers, and Buettenreden, satiric speeches held during Karneval. The Buettenrede originated during medieval times, when the peasantry had the right to criticize freely their rulers.
Many politicians regularly attend this event; Prime Minister of Bavaria Markus Soeder is sure not to miss this Fastnacht. Which costume will he wear in 2023? In past years he has appeared as Homer Simpson and as Shrek.
