Genusswoche Basel is a celebration of regional food and drink from the Basel region. Genusswoche Basel literally translates to ‘enjoy week Basel’. This celebration happens in many forms throughout the restaurants and markets of Basel between the 17-27 September.
During the 10 days of food celebration there are regional food and drink offers available at a wide range of restaurants and bars, here’s my selection events to attend:
17-27 Sept Union Dinner and Restaurant are making a limited edition Basler Burger
17-27 Sept Sutterbegg will release a special edition bread called ‘Genussweggli’ which is full of nuts and has a true autumnal flavour more on that soon!

Cocktails and a selection of fine tapas at the three kings hotel or Les Trois Rois. With the weather being gorgeous at the moment taking your cocktails outside on the balcony might be just the ticket. 99 CHF per person.
