YEAR IN, YEAR OUT ...
VOGEL GRYFF & co. / KLEINBASEL
13 JANUARY or 20 JANUARY or 27 JANUARY
On one day in January they come alive - Vogel Gryff, Wild Maa and Leu ride on a raft along the Rhein, they perform on the Mittlere Brücke, attend a banquet and dance until late at night. During the rest of the year, these characters symbolic of the three honorary societies of Kleinbasel continue to be present in the city, albeit in a quieter way. Do you know where to find them?

Where else in Kleinbasel can you find the three heraldic characters?
