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.
