Swiss yodelling festival 2021 | Basel


The 31st Swiss Yodelling Festival, which was to take place in Basel, has unfortunately been cancelled due to the uncertain situation. The yodelling choirs, alphorn players and flag throwers are looking forward to the next Swiss Yodelling Festival 2023 in Zug.

Experience Basel during the Swiss yodelling festival

This is the second time since 1924 that we have welcomed yodelling choirs, alphorn players and flag throwers to Basel. The Swiss yodelling festival will take place from 25-27 June 2021. Conviviality is a key element of the festival. The “yodellers’ village” will be on Petersplatz, next to the main University building. This is where the participants will meet visitors and the general public and bring Swiss customs to life until the early hours of the morning. The yodellers’ village comprises a number of refreshment stalls operated by regional associations and featuring a variety of culinary delights.
