Fasnacht in Zurich

During Fasnacht, life in the city of Zurich and surrounding region becomes loud, colorful and wild for a few days.

Strange figures with intricately designed masks parade through the villages and towns in the region around Zurich, while the traditional “Guggenmusik” – mostly brass bands playing well-known melodies very loudly and intentionally out of tune – give rise to a festive ambiance. Fasnacht is not only a highly colorful festival, but also an age-old Swiss tradition.
