I have now officially seen it all.

Go here http://www.spielhuus.ch ask for weisse Murmeln (German) or wiiisi murmle (generic Swiss German) if they don't have any, ask them where you could possibly find some.

Just use snow. They'll be fine for a few days at least.

Re: looking for marbles in basel

Its not Basel but I can tell you where they sell a HUGE selection of marbles of all colours .. at the Hergiswil glass factory in Hergiswil just outside Luzern. They have a huge murmelbahn in the park next to the factory which is why they sell so many. I think they are 50 rappen each.

Re: looking for marbles in basel

Try the toy shop at Andreasplatz. More traditional than Spielhuus.

There's another in Rumlinsplatz, but I think you'll have more luck at the first one.
