Hello! Moving to Basel next week

Hi all, this is my first post. I will be moving to Basel next week with my girl friend to start a new job. We are in our late 20s and this will be our first time living in Switzerland so we may have lots of questions for you all.

If anyone could recommend a good pub to watch the rugby world cup final next Saturday that would be great!

Re: Hello! Moving to Basel next week

Welcome to the forum and to Switzerland. Lots of useful info in the various sticky threads in the sub-sections and I also recommend getting hold of a copy of "Living and Working in Switzerland" by David Hampshire. It's full of useful info. You can order it from your local bookshop or via the Internet.

Love your priorities!
Try Flanagans or Paddys
(Both are Irish pubs - Good Atmosphere for matches)

Re: Hello! Moving to Basel next week

Welcome and yes in basel the world cup is not an issue. You should have a blast at the pubs. Heaps of english speakers in basel.

Have fun and remember to bring your sunnies (for the next morning!!!) on the big night.
