  an "old lady" costume, basel carneval
by Myndo

"Fasnacht" is only at 3 days in a year, but the "right basler" is preparing for it the rest of the time. Learning to pipe and drum, sewing their costumes and painting at the laterns and masks.

So if you have a chance and are here around that time, don?t miss the big event.

Starting in the morning at 4 o clock, when all the lights are put out and proceding through several stages - some more open, some for children and others in the restaurants and so on.

You can find the date on the website. As well as more pictures etc. (its written in german)

Address: All over Basel
Directions: keep around the Middle Bridge and you will be in the right place.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
