This FoodTour will take you to places that are a little bit different. The tour, which lasts around three hours, will take you away from the usual tourist attractions and give you the opportunity to get to know “iconic Basel” – and enjoy it slowly. You will visit four establishments in total. They all do things their own way. And are sure to win you over. Their concepts are different and this is precisely why locals love them. You’ll be surprised at the delicious foods awaiting you. It’s worth allowing enough time, and it wouldn’t hurt to skip breakfast either.
"E guete" - enjoy!
Tuesday to Saturday between 9 am and 6 pm. We recommend you start at 11 am, as KLARA does not serve hot food between 2 and 6 pm.
At least 3 hours (self-guided)

If starting before 11 am, you will arrive on time for lunch at the KLARA food court, where you can look forward to delicious lunchtime snacks (until 2 pm).
Please note that the capacity of the partner establishments makes it impossible for large groups (more than six people) to book the tour. For groups of five or six people, please reserve a table at the bakery KULT in advance by sending an e-mail to [email protected] or by calling +41 61 692 11 80.

This is a self-guided tour without a guide. You complete the tour on foot, and we recommend that you wear comfortable shoes.
At Bäckerei KULT, you present your printed booking confirmation or show the staff your e-mail confirmation on your smartphone.
Should you not be able to complete the tour (or visit all of the individual restaurants) on the day booked, you may also choose another day. In this case, be sure to pay attention to the days on which the tour can be taken.
- The best way to reach the starting point at the Bäckerei KULT (bakery) in St. Johann (Elsässerstrasse 43) is by taking tram number 11 towards St-Louis Grenze and getting off at the “Mülhauserstrasse” stop.
