Intro

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.

In German-speaking Switzerland, carnival is known as “Fasnacht” – and Basel’s is the largest in the country, with 72 continuous hours of processions and partying. 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.
