“Our district is TÜV Rheinland” in the cologne dialect. Weeks in advance I was told cross-business about the winter party. A really cool event that you should not miss. Being there is everything! Prerequisite: getting a ticket for the event first.

A carnival evening needs to be prepared

In December finally the e-mail with the ticket request arrived. With a speed of under three seconds I had placed my order. Now I had to wait and see if I would get the much sought-after tickets at all. Then at the beginning of January the relieving message: “You have been selected by our random drawing.” I was really looking forward to it! I had my tickets secured and so the planning for the event could start: Who is going to be there? Which costume do we wear? How do we get to the Sartory halls in Cologne? When do we leave? Who is sitting at the table with whom?

Karnevalsparty im Unternehmen TÜV Rheinland

A colourful programme full of highlights

Then it finally happened. The much longed-for 18 February 2020 had come. In the evening my colleagues and I joined the long queue of disguised jesters. The atmosphere was already phenomenal despite the waiting. Finally in the hall the run to the tables began. We made it! Awesome location! The party could start!

The TÜV Rheinland certified red sparks opened the meeting and led through the jolly evening program. There were countless highlights – from comedy to live bands and dance corps. TÜV Rheinland definitely didn’t miss out on this traditional event and invited the crème de la crème of the Cologne carnival scene. Kasalla, Höhner, Paveier, Guido Cantz, Dä Blötschkopp, Luftflotte and many more provided a colourful and exuberant atmosphere in the Sartory halls.

Celebrating together strengthens the team spirit

Until deep into the night they danced, swayed, and tinkled. No matter if it’s Karnevalsjeck or Jeck dat Jeföhl (jester of feelings), being able to celebrate together creates a bond and the best ingredient is still a pinch of humour: “Do laachs de disch kapott” (“You’re laughing your head off”). Kölle Alaaf. TÜV Rheinland Alaaf.


Thank you!

Also a big thank you to the organisation team and TÜV Rheinland for this event. The effort was really worth it. “TÜV Rheinland is uns Veedel” (TÜV Rheinland is our district).
