Protestant Ash Wednesday Worship Service?

Hello,
I've been looking for a Protestant Ash Wednesday Worship Service in Basel, but I've been unable to find one. Is Ash Wednesday only observed by Catholics here?

Thank you.

Only some, around here it isn't at all.

Yes, Aschermittwoch / AshWednesday was deletedc by Reformator Ulrich Zwingli

But of course is important in Catholic Areas of Switzerland, Baden-Württemberg and Elsass. I might recommend the Cathedral of Strassburg

The Basler therefore placed their Fasnacht onto different Dates in order to avoid conflicts with the church

Some Anglicans do it, but it seems the Anglican Church in Basel isn't doing it this year - probably due to the lack of a permanent vicar at the moment.

I decided to email the Anglican church directly, and they say they are having a service on the 18th in the Niklaus chapel in the Munster. I think it's at 7 pm. Anyway, thanks to all of you for your help. I'm Methodist, but I guess I can be Anglican for a day. :-)
