Vogel Gryff 2022

Drei Ehrengesellschaften Kleinbasel

This Kleinbasel festival that takes place in January on the north side of the Rhine. The so-called ‘Vogel Gryff’ (Eagle), the Lion and the Wild Man are the heraldic symbols of the three Honorary Societies of Kleinbasel. At about 11 a.m. the Wild Man boards a river raft. Floating down the Rhine, he pays homage to Kleinbasel with a special dance. Below the Mittlere Rheinbrücke he is met by the Vogel Gryff and the Lion. The three heraldic symbols then parade their special dances through the streets of Kleinbasel. The ritual, which is derived from military inspections, has been performed since 1838.
