Switzerland is a carnival country some of the festivities are hundred and
more years old:
In parts of East and South Germany, as well as in Austria, the carnival is called Fasching. In Franconia and Baden-Württemberg as well as some other parts of Germany, the carnival is called Fas(t)nacht, Fassenacht or Fasnet; in Switzerland, Fasnacht.
Some of the craziest carnival customs:
Lötschenthal - Tschäggättä
Lucerne – Big Bang
Le Noirmont – Exit of the wild
St. Gallen - Nomination of the “Födlebürger”
Schwyz - Schwyzer Nüssler
Zug - carnival events
Glarus - Sternmarsch
Liestal – Chienbäse Umzug
Basel - Basler Fasnacht
Wish you a great weekend and see you again next week.
