Carnival in Lucerne Luzerner Fasnacht

  • Date: 28.02.2019
  • End date: 05.03.2019
  • Location: Lucerne

A major attraction of the Lucerne Carnival are the Guggemuusige, or improvised (masked) bands. They are dressed-up and masked or made-up carnival cliques who play well-known tunes on their brass and percussion instruments, rather loudly and not always really in tune.

The origins of the Lucerne Carnival are marked by the figure of Fritschi, an elderly man with his wife known as the Fritschene, and the Fritschikind, or Fritschi's child
