The Lucerne Carnival

For many Lucerners Carnival is the most beautiful time of the year. Each time, it starts on Fat Thursday with the Big Bang. Three big parades are among the highlights of Lucerne Carnival.

Every year, towards the end of winter, Carnival breaks out in the streets, alleyways and squares of the old town. This is a glittering outdoor party, where chaos and merriness reign and nothing is as it normally is. More

The Wooden Masks of Kriens

Carnival in Lucerne
Map
While Carnival in Lucerne is dominated by Guggen musicians, the neighbouring borough of Kriens is still more the home of the traditional "Fasnacht".
