Only to be had here

This makes even Berlin turn pale: Each year, on Sunday before Shrove Monday, Cottbus celebrates the largest carnival procession in East Germany with thousands of sweets (Kamelle) thrown into the crowds. Once a year, when the FilmFestival Cottbus occupies the cinemas, the street lights glow in a mysterious blue. The Park Railway has train conductor uniforms in children's sizes and, in its best form, the FC Energie can beat the top club of the league – when it does not happen to be top of the league itself.

You see, there are things and events you can experience only here in Cottbus:
