Newbie - moving to Basel shortly!

Work brings me to the Basel area and as I am completely clueless about your city I would love to get in touch with the local community.

Am particularly enthusiastic about outdoor sports and little jazz/blues clubs. Restaurant recommendations are always appreciated, as are volunteers to go walking around the city with me in the evenings or over weekends ^_^

I will be in Basel permanently from January onwards but am there for a short business trip from Sunday till the 3rd of November. It would be really nice to meet a few people during this trip - or if anyone is attending any local Internations events during this time and would like to make a recommendation, would be happy to sign up.

I have a wide variety of interests and have traveled extensively, so am quite certain we will find things to talk about.

Please post here or better still send me a message!

cheers,
Kavi

Re: Newbie - moving to Basel shortly!

Welcome to the Forum.

Have a look at the 'events' section and see what is going on around Basel. Hope you enjoy your short trip and that the moving and settling in all goes well.

Welcome to Basel.

As for the things mentioned you can check out:
vitaparcour.ch
birdseye.ch

As for evening walks, I think most our lovely members would be suitable.

Hello there

If you're keen on jazz, Bird's Eye (http://www.birdseye.ch/index_e.php) is a nice place to check out during your visit here. Enjoy!

Re: Newbie - moving to Basel shortly!

Just a quick update - am now officially moved in

Have been to Birds-Eye - was nice but almost as soon as I got here they have taken their summer break!
(I swear it wasn't me )

So if anyone is up for walks/boardgame evenings/cinema outings or jazz please do get in touch
