During the Lucerne Carnival, the city comes to life when colourfully costumed people populate the streets, accompanied by the rhythmic sounds of the numerous Guggenmusik bands. The spectacle is officially opened with the big bang at 5 a.m. on "Schmutzigen Donnerstag". The fifth season ends on the following Wednesday.
The carnival tradition goes back a long way and is passed down from generation to generation. The artistic motifs presented on the floats are particularly impressive and often contain humorous allusions to current events. The Lucerne Carnival is therefore not only a visual feast, but also a cultural journey through the history and tradition of this enchanting Swiss city. Immerse yourself in this unique experience and experience the Lucerne Carnival in all its colourful splendour!
