Degree Confluencing

This has nothing to do with University but it could be a little about education…and a great new way to enjoy your leisure time!

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, […]

Buying a mountain bike in Basel

This story originally appeared on 16th August 2002 Swiss bike prices are generally a little higher than other countries, but it’s not a huge amount when you compare like with like. Many people resort to buying apparently good-value bikes from French and German supermarkets. I’m sure they enjoy them a great deal, but we do […]

Gay Beggars? Who are the Gay Beggars?

The Gay Beggars Drama group is the English speaking theatre group of the English Department of the University of Basel.

The area itself lies roughly between the Bahnhof SBB and rail lines to the North, Margarethen Park to the […]

Reigoldswil – Angliberg – Burtenflue – Hinterewasserfallen (2-3 hours)

This walk is quite a climb from 509m to over 1100m – going up towards Passwang and taking in part of the Jurahoehenweg. You need to be quite fit to do this. However the reward is a cablecar or scooter ride back to Reigoldswil.

Laguna Swimming Centre, Weil am Rhein, Germany

Looking for somewhere to go for an afternoon with the whole family? Looking for a really different swimming experience? Or just want to relax on your own or with your partner? Then the Laguna Swimming Centre has it all… just five minutes across the border into Germany!

Climbing Wall, Weil am Rhein

Are you intrigued by the thought of rock climbing as a hobby but aren’t sure how to pursue it? Alternatively, are you a climber relatively new to Basel and aren’t sure where to go? Well, wonder no more! I’m here to tell you about an excellent indoor climbing facility located just across the border in […]

The Semi-Circle Theatre and Basel English Panto Groups

The Semi Circle is a community theater that aims to provide high-quality English-language theater events to a wide audience through the development of skills and participation of members in all aspects of production.

The Ferette Morris Men

Formed in Autumn 2002, the Ferrette Morris Men perform traditional English morris dances, mainly from the Cotswold villages. Usually danced by sets of six men, this ancient fertility ritual involves waving hankies, clashing sticks, jingling bells and replenishing lost fluids with pints of beer.
