The Basel Fasnacht Carnival begins on the Monday following Ash Wednesday and signals three days of exceptional fun. The “drey scheenschte Dääg” (three best days), as the locals call them, are also an incredible experience for visitors to the city. Around 20,000 active participants celebrate for three days, accompanied by music and beautiful carnival lanterns. Anyone really wanting to get to know Basel should not miss the carnival. Take advantage of our great package deal, including overnight accommodation and the official Fasnacht badge.
