Sharing joy and doing good with #xmasinbasel.

You too can take part and help to raise money. On the 40th anniversary of the Basel Christmas market, the Basel Christmas Association has come up with something special. With Basler Kantonalbank as our charity partner, we are donating one franc for every #xmasinbasel post to the Pro UKBB Foundation in aid of sick children. The campaign will run from 23 November to 23 December 2017.

    Share your Basel Christmas moments on social media with #xmasinbasel and, in partnership with BKB, we'll donate one franc per post to the Pro UKBB Foundation. The Foundation is committed to ensuring optimum care for young patients at the University Children's Hospital Basel.

    Magical moments are to be had on every street corner in Basel over Christmas. The lovingly decorated houses in the old town, the festive shop windows and, of course, the idyllic Christmas market all make for a fairy-tale Christmas period. There are countless moments to capture and share – from the many events during Advent such as the fabulous special exhibitions, numerous concerts and the Santas on their Harley Davidsons who have almost become a tradition, to the candles you can make yourself at the Christmas market. Every glimpse of your personal Christmas experiences is worth one franc to us with #xmasinbasel.

Donations will be made for a maximum of ten contributions per person.
