Dragon eruption - opening of the Oberwalliser Fastnacht 2025

After the march-in with various Guggenmusik bands and neighbouring carnival guilds, the dragon breaks out in the car park of the Zentrum complex. The mayor then hands over the sword to Prince Count Jozzelin XII as a symbol of power for the next ten days. From now on, the Prince Count will rule over the village of Narvik. Afterwards, the various Guggenmusik bands play on the festival grounds and the party goes on in the Natisch dragon caves and at the bars until the early hours of the morning. With countless marquees, bars, pubs and a food mile, there is something for every carnival heart.
