  Grusilochzottli, Lahr
by Kathrin_E

A weird character with a weird and untranslatable name... Lahr's Grusilochzottli guild has been founded in 1937. They adopted an old legend about spirits spooking around one old tower. Unfortunately the guild still describes Fastnacht as "driving away winter spirits" according to the 1930's interpretation.

The Häs of the green and brown Grusilochzottli with its large headcover is unique.
