Autumn in Basel

Autumn Fair

The Basler Herbstmesse is more than your average funfair. This traditional event can look back over more than 500 years of history and still enjoys immense popularity.



This trail, which is around 5 km long, links two countries, two communities and two cultural institutions – and tells countless stories along the way. It connects the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein with the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen.


Baloise Session

The Baloise Session music festival offers the opportunity to experience big international stars in an intimate club atmosphere. This high-calibre annual series of concerts features an attractive programme. The line-up includes top international names as well as newcomers.
