Tradition & events
Many of the events that take place in our city have a long tradition. The origins of Basel's famous Fasnacht Carnival date back to the 14th century. Similarly, the autumn fair also has a history of more than 500 years. However, some of the younger events that take place today have already become well-established dates on the calendar.
One should not forget the many smaller events that give the city of culture its well-deserved name. Some of these have already become well-established, others are still establishing themselves. However, they all have one thing in common - the blood, sweat and tears that the promoters and event organisers put in.
