On February 16, 2019, the " WIDER DEN TIERISCHEN ERNST " Order was awarded for the 70th time. In 1950 it was Jacques Königstein, Honorary President of the Aachen Carnival Association (AKV), who initiated the awarding of the Order. The award honours people who combine "humour and humanity in office".

This year, Julia Klöckner, Federal Minister of Food and Agriculture, was delighted with the award. The laudation was held by her predecessor Winfried Kretschmann. The speeches of knights are the highlight of the annual festive session.

And yet another anniversary to celebrate: The AKV celebrates its 160th anniversary. This year, Lambertz was once again happy to sponsor the event. Dr. Hermann Bühlbecker, owner of lambertz, enjoyed the traditional carnival event at the Eurogress in Aachen.
