Dietfurt in Bavaria has been celebrating Carnival, the pre-Lent festival a bit differently than most German towns. In the small town residents have been dressing up like Chinese people and they even have an Emperor.
With cries of “Kille Wau” which is similar to Kölle Alaaf! Carnival in the Bavarian town of Dietfurt begins. The traditional costume in Bavaria is usually lederhosen or a dirndl, but here, during Carnival, Chinese costumes are mandatory. What was once a legend has taken on a bigger role in the life of this German town.
