A whole host of colourfully decorated floats, parading by hundreds of thousands of creatively-dressed party animals, all singing at the top of their lungs to German-language disco pop songs: welcome to Schlagermove, the world's biggest event of its kind. If you want to emerge fully in German party culture, simply don a few cheesy 70's revival clothes and become part of the celebrations. Join the masses in their parade along the famous Landungsbrücken piers, the fish market area and the Reeperbahn nightlife district! In the end, you might even be able to sing along to some German evergreen hits.
