Carnival Parade on the ProWein Sunday in Düsseldorf


The Sunday of ProWein will see the holding of the rescheduled famous Shrove Monday Parade in Düsseldorf. It had to be cancelled on its original date in early February due to a gale warning. The Parade will now run from 11.30 am to approx. 2.30 pm on 13 March. It will run right through the Düsseldorf city centre meaning several roads will have to be blocked.

For information you should take into consideration when travelling to ProWein on Sunday, 13 March

AND please remember the new opening times:
For exhibitors with exhibitor passes from 08.30am – 08.00pm
Opening hours for visitors 10am – 07pm

• If you are travelling by car please be advised to use the A44 motorway (exit Messe/Arena). This route will not be affected by the Carnival Parade at all. Information on arrival.

• Should you be travelling by car from the city centre / Duesseldorf South we recommend you follow the relevant signs. Please allow an additional 15 minutes or so to reach the Exhibition Centre.

• All public means of transport are in operation. The underground line U-78 to ESPRIT Arena/Messe Nord will operate at an elevated frequency running every five minutes. Please read the additional notes on buses and trams.

• Furthermore, the new Wehrhahn underground line will be in operation. This line seamlessly ties in with the existing network. The principal hub will be the new underground station at Heinrich-Heine-Allee. Information regarding the new route network.

Please ask your hotel receptionist about any specific aspects to be considered.

Please do not be surprised when you meet cheerful people in disguise in the city.

We wish you pleasant travels and look forward to you!
The ProWein Team
