Basler Fasnacht

Basler Fasnacht – Basel Carnival, it happens every year and lasts for three days. We were there once before and loved it. Ever since we’ve planned to go again but somehow there was always something else – work, pre-school, everyday life… this year we actually put it into our calendars months earlier, and organized a day off for the whole family.

Website describes the atmosphere of Basler Fasnacht to be jovial but also serious melancholic. And it is. The Parade walking around the city in cool costumes followed by sounds of marching drums that echo from the buildings made of stone. Confettis flying in the air. Candys, fruits, flowers and soft toys are being tossed on the strees from the parade… Every kid is naturally having pockets full of candy!

We all loved it again. I was a bit worried that the noise would be too much for our first-timer, but he was pretty cool with it. Our princess experienced it the first time when she was about 2 years old, and I remember very clearly how she could not sleep the night after because of all the exitement… But she still remembers how she got her first lollipop ever from a clown in the Parade!

Basel Carnival is an event that is very hard to describe with words, you just have to experience it all by yourself to get the feeling… and therefore I am not even going to try to say more… I’ll just let you enjoy some pics that we took along the way. Here you go…

Thank you Basel, see you again next year! :)
