Carnival revellers wearing fancy dress costumes pose in front of the cathedral at the start of the carnival in Cologne. In many parts of Germany, at 11:11 am on November 11 people mark the official start of Carnival, a season of controlled raucous fun that reaches a climax during the days before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent.
