Barbecue and picnic areas

During the summer months, having a barbecue is one of the most popular leisure activities of the people in Basel.

Along the Rhine

People wishing to enjoy a delicious BBQ alongside the Rhine can take their own grill to a designated barbecue spot or use the public one at the Oetlinger buvette.

In parks

Some parks have a public barbecue spot, and people can grill sausages on their own barbecues. To keep these urban oases tidy there are plenty of rubbish bins so that no waste need be left behind.

In the woods

Barbecuing is allowed in the middle of the woods in the Lange Erlen – the area alongside the Wiese, a tributary of the Rhine. The tall trees provide plenty of shade for anyone preferring to flee the sun.
