Bremer Samba-Karneval

A colorful sea of costumes and lively Sambarhythmen transformed the northern Bremen into a high castle of the carnival in February. Since the first Samba carnival in 1986, the event has risen to a fixed size in the Bremen cultural scene, which not only fascinates the people of Bremen: the Samba carnival attracts visitors from all over Germany and beyond the borders of the Federal Republic to Bremen. With this popularity of fans and participants from all over the world, the Bremen Samba Carnival has become the largest in Europe.

Initiative Bremer Karneval e.V.

"The initiative "Bremer Karneval e.V." Is a grouping of people from different professions. Freelance artists or "amateurs" in the truest sense of the word - the term "amateur" is derived from the Latin "amare", that is, love, we love what we do. The many years of carnival have given us the necessary experience, professionalism and an invaluable know-how that will make the carnival in Bremen one of the biggest Samba carnivals in Europe, together with the commitment of all the active people."
