The farm at Obere Wanne in Liestal has quite the offer with a self pick flower paradise, a maize maze and kürbisland or pumpkin land that opens Sept-Oct every year.
The Fünfschilling is a restaurant on a vineyard that is tucked away in Fischingen and small village near Binzen in Germany that is around 25 mins drive from Basel. Fünfschilling is a great place to take the entire family to have an inexpensive family meal, to buy reasonably priced wine, spirits and visit their farm shop that is packed full of seasonal fruit and vegetables and other tasty treats. They also have a wonderful playground for kids and some really yummy cakes.
Well, the weather has certainly changed and the nights are getting darker earlier which makes me want to stew food and eat lots of molten cheese. What are the best things to do in Basel in October? Search for an amazing pumpkin, enjoy the parks and gardens of Basel, go to the Theatre, relax in the spa or go to one of the many Museum’s in Basel.
No need to drive from one farm shop to another or search endlessly to find local artisan food producers.
