Hochwald/ Gempen: anyone living there


We are looking to buy a land to build a house in this region. I have 2 boys, currently in primary school. How is the life there in general.Are there any activities, football clubs, horse riding club for boys of this age. Also, does anyone have experience with secondary school there.
Also, how is the commute to Basel city. I know it is not ideal but is it terribly bad.

Re: Hochwald/ Gempen: anyone living there

No idea about the kids stuff, but for commuting, you'll have to take the bus down to Dornach and then Tram 10 into Basel.

Of course, if it was me, I'd cycle to work. I cycle through there quite often and would be happy to live there, the other half is not so keen though.
