Fasnacht Entertainment — Schnitzelbängg

Various Locations
© wikipedia

Schnitzelbank singers are individuals or small groups who present satirical songs in Basel dialect that, like the Sujets, poke fun at well-known events or personalities of the previous year. The songs are often illustrated with specific pictures, the “Helgen.” On Monday and Wednesday evening, more than 100 such Schnitzelbank groups wander through various bars and restaurants in the city center to present their songs. While they are unbelievably clever and funny, a good understanding of Basel dialect is necessary to appreciate this event.
