The package includes:


  • Food tour with KULT
    worth CHF 33

  • Drink at the bar or in our beautiful garden (a glass of wine, Basel beer or soft drink)

  • BaselCard


Costs: CHF 10.00 per person in addition to your room price

Whether lifestyle, culture, architecture or exit: Basel has the flair of a big city and is also worth a trip in autumn.


We take you to the favorite places of the locals. Only a few streets away from the classic tourist hotspots and yet in the heart of the city. Walk from the St. Johanns-quarters to the Klybeck and Matthäus-quarters and further to the old town of Kleinbasel - here you are guaranteed to meet more residents than tourists.


You eat where the people of Basel spend their lunch break, you pass shops that are considered insider tips and you stand in line with all those who know where the best ice cream in the city is. If you roam through the colorful, diverse quarters of the city, in some corners it can happen, that you imagine yourself in a big city at the other end of the world instead of directly on the Rhine-knee.


An uncomplicated, self-guided walk with stops at popular local food locations.


The footour is possible from Tuesday to Saturday.

Duration: approx. 3 hours (including rest).


Tip: If you start before 11:00 in the morning, the timing is perfect, so you are at the KLARA food court for lunch. Here you can get snacks from the lunch kitchen (until 2 p.m.).
