The Cortège is the large Carnival parade during which around 12,000 costumed Carnival revellers in formations of various sizes present their sujets (themes). It takes place on Carnival Monday and Wednesday.
Best time of year
The cliques and Guggenmusik players march in the cortège, with the parade following a set route through the city centre. The Waggis on the floats distribute flowers and oranges along with other small treats – mostly food and drink.
