Things to do in Basel

Do you love English rose gardens, scones and cream?

Ettenbuehl Gardens

Ettenbühl Gardens

Ettenbühl Gardens located near Bad Bellingen in Germany around 30 mins drive from Basel.  They boast an impressive 1,000 variety rose collection plus a 5 hectare garden with 20 different themed zones to wander through.  If you are interested in photography the gardens offer a lot of amazing vistas for portraits.  Take a picnic blanket in the summer months and while away the hours in the most idyllic setting.  The garden is quite compact so wandering between the English rose garden to a Mammoth tree alley to the extensive maze is not too taxing.

The gardens offer a busy schedule throughout the year including tours, concerts, picnic evenings, flower arranging, an english garden school and lot of tasty treats in their restaurant which has some English treats such as scones and cream, a high tea and a full English breakfast is served on Sunday mornings too.

Dogs are allowed in the restaurant but not in the gardens.

My recommendations

Get lost in the box maize (open in the summer months only)

For the keen gardener – browse the 1,000 different varieties of rose on sale

Try a flower arranging course – typically 1 day, cost approx 150 Euros

Enjoy an English breakfast (23 Euros) or scone and cream (12 Euros)

Book into one of the Shakespeare evenings that include a picnic dinner (summer only)
