Thanks for your rating
Basel's Fasnacht (carnival) is a feast for the senses that begins with the Morgenstraich procession at 4am. Colourful masks, lanterns and costumes abound, as do three Fasnacht specialities whose aroma fills the air for Basel's "three most beautiful days": Mehlsuppe (brown flour soup), Zwiebelwähe (onion tart) and Fastenwähe, a caraway-seed pretzel enjoyed with beer.
