If you want to experience Basel in a state of complete chaos, then you should be here during the carnival! Most of ”die drey scheenschte Dääg”, ”the three most beautiful days” as carnival time is known here in Basel, happens out in the open-air. During the day the ”cliques” march through town in their elaborate costumes, with their drummers and Piccolo players as part of the ”Cortège” procession. In the evenings, the ”Fasnächtler” wander through the narrow alleyways and fill the historic centre with the sound of their melodies.

After the relaunch of our entire brand last year, we are following up in 2017 with new uniforms for our 200 employees. While our bartenders used to mix drinks in grey uniforms, they are now dressed from head to foot in elegant black. The simple elegance of the new uniforms is enhanced with bright, colourful details discretely woven into the fabric: for example, the hotel’s corporate colours have been woven into the inner linings and the claim ”Rich in history, young at heart” is also stitched in – in the full spirit of the rich tradition of our hotel and its staff from more than 30 different nations, who imbue it with its youthful spirit.
