  • Kannenfeldpark, covering 9.1 hectares, is the largest green space in the city of Basel. In addition to its vast range of trees, the green park is a popular place for young and old to spend time.

  • These green spaces are great places to walk and linger in the summer months. The grassy areas offer plenty of space for relaxing, sunbathing and picnicking.
