J’ouvert, Parties, the Stage, Road March, Rum and Soca, no sleep. For anyone who loves a good Caribbean Carnival no matter where on this planet, these terms are synonymous to what to expect. Careful, if you haven’t been at the Karnival der Kulturen in Berlin this year, this post will give you an acute sense of FOMO.
Who would have thought that the Germans, Swiss and Austrians would so fall for Soca? You’ll be surprised but the German Soca scene is growing and growing. Berlin Carnival is now one of the top Carnival destinatios in Europe. The timing is also perfect. Only 2 ½ months after Trinidad Carnival and just shortly after Bacchanal Jamaica - Berlin Carnival is a perfect alternative to attend in Europe for all Soca Lovers.

Crossing the stage in Berlin is as important as at any other Carnival. No matter which Carnival you attend, there is always much hype surrounding crossing the stage.
