FoodTour ICONIC.


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 five 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!

Tip: Starting before 11 am means you will arrive on time for lunch at the KLARA food court, where you can look forward to delicious lunchtime snacks (until 2 pm).
