Basel is rightly famous for its carnival tradition. Everyday life comes to a stand-still as thousands of revelers enjoy "die drey scheenschte Dääg" (the three most beautiful days). But what exactly is going on? And what makes this festival unique? The lecture tells you all you need to know about the course of events, the history and the do's and don'ts. It's the ideal preparation for your visit.
