Wenn die Mittlere Brücke in Basel so voller Menschen ist, muss Fasnacht sein :-) When The "Mittlere Brücke" Of Basel Is Overcrowded Like That, There Must Be Carnival In Town :-)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Die Mittlere Brücke ist die älteste der sechs Brücken, die in Basel den Rhein überqueren. Während der Fasnacht ist sie für die Cliquen und ihre Zuschauer reserviert, der Strassenbahn- und Autoverkehr wird umgeleitet, zum Beispiel über die moderne Johanniterbrücke im Hintergrund, auf der von Fasnacht nichts zu spüren ist :-) The "Mittlere Brücke" is the oldest of the six bridges crossing the River Rhine in Basel. During Carnival it is reserved to the Carnival companies and their spectators -- no tramways, no cars! On the modern "Johanniterbrücke" in the background however, there is "business as usual" :-)
