Fribourg hosts the sixth Zähringer Narrentreffen on January 25 and 26! A Germanic tradition that brings together the cities of Zaehringen in Europe!
No less than fifty troupes of guggenmusik, cliques and groups of fairies, buffoons or witches, from the twelve cities founded by the "Maison des Zaehringen" in Switzerland and Germany, will animate the city of Fribourg for two days.
This Narrentreffen tradition is alive and well-known in Germany and is not limited only to the cities of the Zaehringen. Even if the Zähringer Narrentreffen have already made a stopover in our country, especially in Murten, it is an unmissable event to discover!
