Things to do in August

w/c 9th of August

Welcome to this weeks edition of Things to do in Basel.  

I hope you have had a great Summer so far, wow it’s been hot weather recently!  I have been busy redesigning the blog website, I hope you like the new format? 

Here’s some great things to in the week ahead, Louise

Baselersternschuppennacht - Basel Shooting Stars Evening

Wednesday 12th, 18:00-1:00 @ Deck 57, Westquaistrasse 19.

What better way to spend a warm summers evening than to relax in Deck 57 and enjoy a beautiful, live, classical, Cello concert and have chance to while away the hours on the deck up until 1 am.  This time of year is prime for seeing shooting stars in the night sky, stay on the deck after the concert and you maybe be able to ‘wish upon a star’.

Deck 57 is a trendy, beach style deck that is situated on an old boat at Westquai a point on the map where Switzerland, France and German meet.

Tickets are 19/24 CHF and available here They are 28 CHF on the evening itself.
