Basel’s No 1 English only speaking information website.


. This information site is for the English speaking residents and visitors to Basel to give you up to date information about What’s happening in Basel for everyone from nights out, to the family looking to entertain the kids on a weekend, helpful local numbers, places to visit and many other things to help with staying in Basel. As an ex-pat myself living here for just short of 10 years now we can give you the latest information on events coming up on our Basel in English facebook page.

Day trips out of Basel are also good to know so the What’s around us gives you links to different places for day trips. There are links to not only Summer places to go, but a great Skiing website that give you loads of info about where to go, how far away and what available at the resorts. This website is also to help people thinking about coming for Weekend breaks to the city. You can book possibly the best Hotel rates on our Hotels page and there are many links to all the different restaurants as well as all the local attractions.
