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.

The rest of the year you can get a flavour of the “three best days”, as locals call them, along a special itinerary created by Basel Tourism.
