Birthday party options for 8 y.o. in Basel

Hello,
My son's 8th birthday is coming up. Does anybody have some suggestions of places in Basel where you could have 15 or so kids for a couple of hours? Back home we had a bit more space at home and there is also lazer tag and things like that. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Re: Birthday party options for 8 y.o. in Basel

Hi,

Assuming the weather is okay...for our son's (1st) birthday we had a gathering at the Claramattepark which has a small adventure playground, swings etc. Migros has a party food service where you can buy pre-made sandwiches etc and we supplemented it with cakes etc.

There is also the "Youth Centre" (Jugendtreff) under the Dreirosenbrücke on the Kleinbasel side ( http://www.dreirosen.ch ) which has an indoor play area - also for birthday party hire. Follow the link "Raumangebot" - room offer - and on that page is a link to a PDF about hiring for "Geburtstäge" (Birthdays).

Also, I think the zoo has some possibilities.

Just some ideas.

Cheers,
Nick

It's not Basel, but we have been to a few parties held at (I don't know how to spell it) Okidok, and (some other) indoor-play-centre near Mulhouse.

cheers,

Re: Birthday party options for 8 y.o. in Basel

== ==If you live in Binningen, Familienzentrum Binningen could be a good option for small children, I would say up to 5 or 6. There are 2 rooms, one with toys, and the other with a big table, chairs, sofas, a little kitchen, a coffe machine, and also there is a nice playground outside, with rides and a small wooden-made little house.

They charge for the morning or afternoon little money (30-40 CHF?) and you also have the option to rent some toys from the ludothek, which is on the 1st floor of the building.


If you do not live in Binningen, I am not sure whether you can rent the place, you will have to ask:
Barbara Jost Zürcher, telefonisch erreichbar jeden Montag und Donnerstag von 9 - 11 Uhr, Tel. 061 425 53 78

Re: Birthday party options for 8 y.o. in Basel

I recently became aware that the Sutterweg bakery hosts birthday parties for children where they get to bake their own cake and bread. Here's a link:

This user would like to thank Patuleko for this useful post:

Does anyone know if something like this exists in Zürich for children' birthday parties?

Re: Birthday party options for 8 y.o. in Basel

Closer and better for 8 year olds (slightly older things to do and wider selection) is the Lorrach Okidok indoor play area. You can hire a birthday area and various options for catering or you can just turn up and try to nab a big table (there is lots of seating). We did the birthday room thing but did our own catering. I think you should count on about 3 hours actually in the place. It is accessible by SBahn from SBB.

The easiest birthday party we have ever done. Husband and I sat drinking coffee and flicking through travel brochures for our next summer holiday .. .

Warmly recommended!
