Basel Things to Do: 203 reviews and 337 photos

Swiss German people have the capacity to be very calm, structured and disciplined. But there are three days in the year where these people just go NUTS; and that is during their carnival. They practise songs with their musical instruments throughout the year just to play all day long during this time, which is called Fasnacht.
Take a look at the photo!!!

Address: All around down town
Directions: Get to the main bridge to see the parade during the mid-afternoon
