4 plus hours at the Basel airport

by lvpool05

We have to spend 4 plus hours at the Basel airport from 5 to 9.30 pm on a Monday.

1) Anything interesting at the airport to pass the time? Any ok place to eat?

2) Is the price of food and drinks there reasonable?

3) Any comfortable place to sit and rest along with 3 luggages?

TQ for the quick reply. I have accessed that site, not much of useful information in terms of actual user experience. Someone who has used that airport often and can elaborate on their experiences will be immensely helpful.

Travel Tips for Basel

Internet Cafes in Basel

by matjung

While this response, won't help you, maybe it helps someone else.
The closest one I can think of, is
In general there are not that many internet cafes in Basel.
This is one operator which is centrally located.

Internet-Dome GmbH
Steinenvorstadt 53
4051 Basel

The closest tram station would be Theater or Barfüsserplatz.
It is not that far away, you can also go on foot.
Maybe 15 minutes.

This internet cafe is located at the pedetrian precingt Steinenvorstadt.

I think there is also an internet cafe inside McDonalds.
Also Tram station Barfüsserplatz.


by eden_teuling

BASEL also has its FLEAMARKET and I know that some VT friends are EXTREMELY fond of these places......

I have to admit that I LOVE walking over fleamarkets, waiting for my heartbeat to quicken when I suddenly THINK / HOPE to have found something to my liking / something very special!

In BASEL die FLOHMäRKTE is: Saturdays

Auf dem Petersplatz and the Kaserneareal

Have a look at your plan or ask.....

FCB - Football Club Basel

by Myndo

I am not much into football (or soccer as the americans say), but it is really hard in these times to get around it.

FCB, that is our local Football Club, is playing well enough to attract a lot of fans.
They are Schweizermeister (best swiss football club) this year and 2002. 4-5 players do also play in the National Team.

So, do not be astounded to find the flag in red, blue and yellow almost everywhere - even on the Rathaus on the Market Place (see pic).

Its not only the flag, almost every third car from Basel and surrroundings has the sticker on it.

When they have a match at their local stadion (St. Jakob), the area is closed for cars - and you better not need a parking space right then.

A city of contrasts

by KiNyA

In 1356 most of the Basel tumbled into dust and ashes in a massive earthquake. With fortitude and faith, Basel's citizens rebuilt what has become the fascinating and lively Old Town we see today.
Base is faithful to this legacy and yet embraces the best of what is new. Buildings by leading international architects stimulate discussion while providing an exciting contrast to medieval buildings.
Basel is also a city where young people have ample scope for development while still preserving traditions in age-old guilds and societies.

On this picture you see the...

by Toby_Swiss

On this picture you see the main night-life street from Basel - the Steinenvorstadt (called 'Steinen'). Since the whole city center is actually quite small, all the good (or let's better say the popular) places to go out are situated close to each other. So a typical pub-tour or something like that is always nice and easy.

There are plenty of 'Bierstuben' in the backstreets of Klein-Basel to start an evening. Situated on the right bank of the river, in Rheingasse, there's the famous 'Fischerstube' and 'Linde' which has the best beer in town, the Ueli-Beer. It's even popular all over Switzerland. Try it, you'll definitely like it!

Later in the evening have a look at Atlantis, an old dancing place where already my grandmother has been. It's still one of the most popular places to go out, even if it's obviously a place to be seen... And if you like it a bit rougher, try the Irish Pub Paddy Reilly's or the Mr. Pickwick Pub - places always full of people from all over the world. The club 'Route 66' might be a funny place to end up the night - it's the place where most people go after 3am.

Bars like 'Des Arts', 'Campari Bar' or the always crowded Papa Joe's are always nice to hang around. They seem a bit posh on the first sight, but actually they are not. Just some nice calm places to date someone or also to start a long evening.

Between Barfüsserplatz and Marktplatz there's a place called Mitte with its smoking and non-smoking bars 'fumare non fumare'. Personally I really like this place as there are always many different kinds of happenigs like tango-evening, classical concerts, speaches, discos, etc. You'll find people from all ages there; artists, students, bankers, a cultural mix which shows good the real Basel atmosphere.

What else? Clubs like nt/Areal or 'Nordstern' in the industrial Northern part of Basel are nice as well. Good music, not main-stream and nice people... :)

At you'll find a good overview about Basel's nightlife.
