Allschwil Fasnacht

One week before the biggie in Basel, Allschwil has its own rather smaller scale Fasnacht celebrations. The cortege starts at 2pm on Sunday 22nd February and officially ends at 4pm – but few people actually go home just then!

A trip to Legoland (more than just a block away…)

This article was written by Tanya near Basel in 2004. I made it to Legoland over the weekend and it ended up being roughly a 3 1/2 hour drive from Basel. It is in between Munich and Stuttgart, so there are no large cities immediately around it. We drove up Fri. night, spent the night, […]
