Re: Muslim groups in Basel?

There's the Balser Muslim Kommision.

http://www.bmk-online.ch/

The site is in German, but perhaps if you contact them there may be an English (or other mutual language) speaker.

Zurich isn't too far away from Basel and I think there is a bit more happening here; the mirror organisation to the BMK in Zurich is VIOZ: http://www.vioz.ch/

Re: Muslim groups in Basel?

I asked and got this answer that there are two mosques there,

One of them is in 18 Friedensgasse, Basel, Basel-Stadt 4056 (+ 41 61 261 89 02 )

and the other is in 6 Leimgrubenweg, Basel, Basel-Stadt 4053 (+ 41 76 330 19 38), this one has an Emam and looks like a cultural center more than a mosque.

I suggest dropping them both a call to see if they fit as well to make sure this is a correct info.

I've been there, as you said it is a bit more than mosque. However it seems there is not many english speakers around there but worth to have a look though.

Re: Muslim groups in Basel?

Hi Zaynab

I am in a similar position and moving in a few weeks..did you find any organisations in Basel that might be good for kids? or even just like minded English speakers from abroad? I myself am coming from the UK and have two kids.

Re: Muslim groups in Basel?

There is not much in the way of an English speaking muslim community in the Basel area. Most of the muslims in the area are from a Turkish Background and speak liitle or no English.


However, there is a website (www.pakistani.ch) for the Pakistani community which organises Events and social gatherings.


You can PM me if you need more Information/help.

Re: Muslim groups in Basel?

There are many mosques in Basel area. Here is a bigger list:

http://www.swissmuslims.ch/index.php...ch&place=Basel

Go to the mosques an I am sure you will find many many English speakers from variety of countries.

For any halal stuff you can easily go over to Germany side and buy on a weekly basis.

Re: Muslim groups in Basel?

Thank you for your reply. It's really helpful. If you can guide how to find local primary public schools in Basel it would be great.

Thank you

You don't need to "find one", as such. Once you move here and register at the local authority, you will receive details of which school your kids are assigned to. Usually it's the one nearest to you.
