Bernese ‘Fasnacht’

(16 Wows)

Once a year, the Bernese get all dressed up and make merry until the early morning hours in Bern’s alleyways. The Bernese «Fasnacht» (carnival) has developed into Switzerland’s third largest celebration of carnival fun and frivolity. It always starts on a Thursday, when the bear held captive in the Käfigturm (prison tower) is awoken from hiswinter slumber by «Ychüblete» (drumming) and then set free.
