Zuger Fasnacht

Verkleidete Fasnachtsfiguren laufen mit Fackeln durch die Strassen.

For many Zug residents, carnival is the best time of year. It starts on Schmudo, as Dirty Thursday is affectionately known, at 5 o'clock sharp with the Chesslete. Guggenmusikigen and Fasnächtler transform the city and region into a colorful, noisy sea of color. The carnival lasts until Güdel Tuesday and, according to tradition, is supposed to drive away winter or the devil. Come to the Zug carnival and celebrate with us.
