Fair in November?

I am working on booking a room in Cologne as we will be stopping there on our honeymoon...it is the week of November 13 of this year. I seem to see many hotels are already booked, and one mentioned in an e-mail that there is a "fair" in town that week. Does anyone have any details on what it is etc?

If I get this right

koelnmesse.com/wEnglisch/unternehmen/messen_…

there is none at the 13. November.

And the ones directly before or after are all rather small ones, which should cause no problems on finding accommodation.

Well, there is nothing on the 13th, but we wil be there 14 November and 15 November, and there seems to be some small confrences. Thanks for the link, thats what I was looking for. I was hoping at least they meant a cultural fair, not a trade show....but I am sure we'll have enough to see anyway....

11th is the time you want to be there!!

start of carnival and the most fantastic day

everyone partying from 11mins past 11am with bands in the streets, and everyone dressed up. Good time to be had by all.

I fell upon it by accident last year and had to follow a man dressed as a six foot green watering can to find out what was going on.
