The local guide to Things to do in Basel, September 2021. Im Fluss becomes Floss, we see another Genusswoche a brilliant chance to learn more but our local gastronomy and oh boy do the restaurants and bars need our support… At the end of the month Basel will see the start of Art Basel.

Take my tour of Basel’s microbreweries and beer halls, doable in one day or over time. There’s a vibrant microbrewery scene in Basel and many a wonderful beer hall to drink a beer in the bar, on the terrace or to take away. Cheers and enjoy!!
The Basel bag is the 2021 sponsorship item for the blog. Buying one of these bags keeps the Things to do in Basel blog going, thanks for supporting us! Louise

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.
