Basel has so much to offer and is an experience for young and old.

From animal safaris in Basel Zoo, an exciting scavenger hunt through Basel to a relaxing boat trip on the Rhine, the city leaves nothing to be desired. We would be happy to share some of our insider tips with you.


The "Zolli", as it is called by the Baslers, invites the whole family to visit and is a wonderful experience in every season.


Cross the Rhine with one of the four Basel ferries: "Ueli",

"Vogel Gryff", "Leu" or "Wilde Maa". You can get tickets directly from the "Fährimaa" or from us at the reception.
