Things to do this Easter weekend

Enjoy the sunshine and stay healthy and well....

Spring has certainly sprung this week with temperature rising to 25 degrees.  I was really happy to have the chance to make some new photographs in amongst the Magnolia trees at Sankt-Peter Kirche, the blossoms are magnificent at this time of year so, go to see them in the next few days as the flowers are already fading and will soon be gone.

Read on for my summary for things to do this weekend including, cycle routes, walking routes, rope walking through the trees and having a go on a solar bob plus beer sales, new offers in town and more…. 

Biking and hiking in the cherry blossom

The Cherry Route 111

The Chrisiroute 111 is a 30 km bike tour through the cherry trees of Basel land starting in Leistal and ending in Laufen.  Complete this route in the next few weeks and you will be able to witness the most beautiful display of pink and white cherry blossom that will yield the most delicious local cherries in June sometime…yummy.  The bike route can be found here.  Watch the video blow to see just how beautiful the Cherry route is.

Baselbieter Chirsiweg 471

Since spring 2020, a new walking route opened in the Upper Basel area: the “Baselbieter Chirsiweg” with number 471. It starts at the Sommerau train station, leads to Oltingen and is a good ten kilometers long.  For a map of the route and more in-depth details click here

Deinkick in Langenbruck - Solar bobsledding and a tree rope walk

Lagenbruck is around 35 mins from Basel and hosts the Deinkick a leisure zone for skiing, solar bob sledding *Rodelbahn or Solarbob’ and has Seilpark, a wonderful series of rope walks that will take you on a journey through the trees canopy.  The weather is just right to enjoy this outdoor experience.

The park is open during the Easter weekend on Saturday, Sunday and Monday, 10-17h.  Prices start at 3 CHF per bob ride and 19CHF for a walk around the Seilpark these activities are open to children over 6.

You can visit Deinkick by IR 27 from the Basel SBB to Leistal bahnhof then 19EV bus to Langenbruckdorf then, switch to the bus 94 to final destination.


Our regions flower fields have re-opened and offer a wide selection of spring bulbs, I am going to write an article about our local flower fields later in the month and some of my research has led me to develop this google map that shows the location of some of the better flower fields in our region click here to view the map.  

Jenny’s wellness oasis opens in Basel offering a get away from home, she offers a relaxing retreat from home office with all natural, vegan cosmetics, hand made by herself.  I can attest that her facials are superb and I am currently loving her rich body butter that is lightly whipped and very fragrant.

Matt and Elly have a ramp sale on Easter saturday 12:00-19:00 outside their restaurant in Erlenmattstrasse, they are selling their award winning beer with the options to take away some amazing burgers, not to be missed.
