Re: Moving to Basel :)

Are you coming for work or romance?

This site is best (IMO) for questions and answers, use the search function as for the most part every situation has been covered already, but don't be shy in asking!

Re: Moving to Basel :)

Meeting friends at work is the most easy place to make them if that is why you are moving here.

There is Flanagan's, which is the most English-like pub in Basel.

I met a lot of people at my gym and yoga studio too.

Good luck with the move!

This is a great list, I've met lots of people (and furnished my new home) with these groups

If you have a dog, I'd also recommend Basel Dogs.

Welcome to Basel, I hope you enjoy settling in here!
