Carnival and Mardi Gras in and around Alsace

Take advantage of your stay in Alsace to attend the Carnivals near the hotel

Several colourful events take place in February in Eastern France, Switzerland and Germany.

Let's take a look at the dates to remember during your stay in your spa hotel in Alsace, the Best Western Plus Au Cheval Blanc!


The Mulhouse Carnival, from 22 to 26 February 2023

From the end of February to mid-March, Mardi Gras arrives in the Alsace region.

Every town loves to celebrate the end of winter and you can have fun at the Mulhouse Carnival, a 15-minute drive from the hotel.

For its 70th year, the Mulhouse Carnival introduces the 70s and flowers.

On the programme:
  • Election of the best costume
  • Carnival of the districts
  • Fresco competition
  • Children's day
  • Street parades
  • Special evenings

The municipality of Haute-Rhine is putting on one of the best shows in the region.


Basel Carnival in Switzerland, from 27 February to 1 March 2023

After the event in Mulhouse, head for the Basel Carnival, a 35-minute drive from your Best Western Plus Au Cheval Blanc hotel.

It takes place during one week. It's an opportunity to show everyone how creative you are and to celebrate together.

These days are also part of UNESCO's World Intangible Cultural Heritage. That's saying a lot!

To start the Carnival, the Basel people wait until Monday, just after Ash Wednesday.

In the middle of the night, at around 4 a.m., the "Morgenstreich" starts in the city centre.

The handmade lanterns light up in the darkness and are accompanied by drummers. They will continue until 4 a.m. the next day.

On the programme:
  • Float procession
  • Lantern exhibitions
  • Children's carnival
  • Guggenkonzert (brass bands)
  • Schnitzelbängg (humour)

Freiburg Carnival in Germany, 18-21 February 2023

Germany also wears its most beautiful colours at this time of year!

Let's meet for the occasion in Freiburg where the Carnival of the Bolzes takes place, 40 minutes away from your Best Western hotel near Mulhouse.

Since 1928, young and old, young and old, have been gathering in the historic districts of the city to celebrate together.

Equipped with their carefully chosen disguise, they take part in the wanderings between music and fun.

In this atmosphere, the night procession on Saturday evening is not to be missed. Indeed, the troops parade by torchlight and the result is particularly magnificent.

There is no doubt that the Carnival period is a time of joy and good humour for everyone. Come and enjoy it by booking your Best Western hotel near Mulhouse Au Cheval Blanc!
