Rides, opening hours and locations
Welcome to Basel's Autumn Fair. Find the most important information here about this year's rides, attractions, opening hours and locations. We hope you enjoy the event.
The name says it all. Classics from the 1980s are celebrating a revival here: The Vienna Prater ghost train, the Break Dance or the «Südseewelle»....feeling nostalgic?Details
Fans of vintage funfair rides will be delighted. But adrenalin junkies will also have plenty of fun. The «Spin Tower» will carry you to dizzying heights and let you drop, shrieking, back down. After the scare it's time for a sausage, tarte flambée or candy floss.Details
The centrally located Barfüsserplatz is the best place for a short visit to the fair. Stands sell sweet Basel specialities such as «Mässmogge» (candy) and «Rahmtäfeli» (fudge). People can mingle and eat in intimate surroundings. And hear plenty of screams and laughter from those taking a ride on the «Ski Lift».Details
Stroll past the stands, say «Hallo!» here, or «Sali» there. Snack on sweet magenbrot and treat yourself to a mulled wine with friends. The kids play, gaze in wonder and ride on the carousel. This is the autumn fair on the «Peti», as residents call their favourite square. You can browse for beautiful objects or delicacies here, eat one of Jeffrey’s renowned steaks or a «Kääsbängel», buy pans or knitted hats. Away from the wild rides, the atmosphere is cosier at Petersplatz and the Hääfelimäärt.Details
