Just moved to Basel

Hi everyone i have just moved to Basel. I am really interested if anyone who can speak English would like to meet for a coffee or a drink, so i can find out about the city.

I have moved here with my boyfriend from England as he has a job here in Basel.

Also if any of you are members of groups that meet regular for a chat that would also be great if you could give me some information on them as well.

Thanks Georgina

Re: Just moved to Basel

Hi Georgina, welcome to Basel. I moved here from the states just over a year ago. One organization that I've found to be quite useful for English speakers here in Basel is Centrepoint. They have a coffee morning every Friday from 10:30-12:30 or so. It's a great time to come check out what they have to offer, meet people and hear English! Their website is:
www.centrepoint.ch/
I'd also be happy to meet up sometime although after this week I'll have two kids in tow.
Sarah

Hi Georgina,
welcome to Basel! There are 2 great organisations, which I can recommend to check out activities in Basel area: www.glocals.com (this is a site for expats and global locals living in Switzerland - check out the activities for Basel - it´s a bunch of fun and interesting mix of people); the other site is: www.meetup.com - where I recommend to check out a group called BASS (Basel area social & sports). There are also other groups you might want to search/check out. This - in addition to the Centrepoint.
Hope you´ll enjoy Basel - I do - have been living here already almost 4 yrs and still love it! )

Enjoy the Swiss summer!
Maria

Re: Just moved to Basel

Welcome to Basel Georgina!!!
Another great place with loads of activities here in Basel is www.connections.ch I have found them to be quite busy with events. If your a runner there is www.baselrunning.ch and if your into golfing there is a golf group in Basel www.baselbaggers.com . There are plenty of social English speaking groups to join in the activities. Save your calendar date for July 31 at the Rhine... It is Switzerland National Day and spectacular fireworks! Just a heads up. I hope this helps finding and meeting new people here.
I work in Basel 3 days a week and have helped our new staff from the UK get acclimated in Basel, I would be happy to meet you for lunch and any help you may need, even to make a new friend Feel free to send me a private message. Cheers and happy summer!

Hi, Welcome to Basel, its a beautiful place. My daughter (age 9) and I are joining my husband who has been working and living in Basel for a year now. We are moving to Reinach in 20 days time.
It would be great to meet up and chat and try and help you as we have been out to Basel every few weeks so maybe able to guide you. Im still learning and trying to find my way too. Its very exciting but scarey too.
Enjoy living here, you wont regret it.... Sarah
