Motifs of the Carnival
Exhibitions

Year in, year out, we experience Carnival in our region and beyond. This reveals an extensive tradition with its own rules, in which masquerading plays a special role, especially in the Swabian-Alemannic carnival. The exhibition in the Elztal Museum is dedicated to the carnival mask. It shows the origins of the mask motifs and their integration into the traditions. The exhibition is rounded off with an insight into the production of larvae.
