Vogel Gryff

Of seasonal interest


Vogel Gryff is the most important public holiday in Kleinbasel. The customs are still practised today. Once a year, the "Wild Maa" (wild man) travels down the Rhine on his raft and is received by the "Leu" (lion) and "Vogel Gryff" (griffin). We introduce you to this age-old tradition and explain the unique figures that are part of it.
