Carneval in Basel

We suggest you another carnival to discover:the event being defined as the “three best days” in Basel.
The celebration begins on Monday after Ash Wednesday with a really special march. At 4 a.m. sharp for the “Morgestraich”, all lights in the city are switched off and around 200 artistically decorated lanterns start glowing in the dark. Doesn’t it sound charming? The lanterns are placed afterwards on the Münsterplatz for the public to admire. See the complete program here.
