Here are some photos from today in Niederdorf. As well as the streets being strewn with confetti there was music and revelry in the air as bands played and people roamed the streets dressed in all colours and types of clothing.

If you’re not able to visit Zurich tomorrow and you want to have a “full Fasnacht experience” you could always hold out for the big one in Basel which start at 4am on Monday morning. Basler Fasnacht is famous and the SBB even lay on special trains from Zurich so that you can get there in time for the early start.  For more information on Basler Fasnacht please read our previous post. Whatever you do have fun!
