The Carnival in Basel begins on the Monday after Ash Wednesday with the "Morgestraich" at 4 am. All lights in the city centre are switched off, over 200 Carnival themes (sujets) painted on lanterns start glowing in the dark, and the signal is given for hundreds of drummers and piccolo-players to strike up the same march – a magical moment. 72 hrs of celebration follow.
