blogpic_carnival_lucerne

Lucerne – Strange characters with fantastic masks and costumes parade along the narrow streets while groups of carnival musicians (“Guggenmusigen”) blow their instruments in joyful cacophony and thousands of bizarrely clad people dance away the spirits of winter.  The next carnival (“Fasnacht”) begins on 4 February and ends on 9 February – not only in the city of Lucerne but in the entire region surrounding Lake Lucerne.

There are three highlights tothe Luzern Carnival:

The Fritschi Parade, which starts from the Hotel Luzernerhof at 14:00 on 4 February, the day known locally as “Schmutziger Donnerstag” (“Dirty Thursday”)

The Wey Parade, which starts from the Hotel Luzernerhof at 14:00 on 8 February, the day known locally as “Güdismontag“ (“Fat Monday”)

9 February (Shrove Tuesday) is the day of the Monstercorso Parade, which starts from the Bahnhofstrasse at 19:30.
