*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Gempen
Event Type: Other
Meeting Point: Dornach Bus Station (Bus 67 to Gempen)

After speaking to a few people from the Curry night I thought I would see if anyone would like to meet up for a walk in the snow around Gempen on Sunday and if have them some sledging.!! If it is clear the views will be nice. Non specific route, but I know the area quite well.

www.wanderland.ch

We can walk for a few hours (with the odd hot drink stop) then head down either to Arlesheim, Munchenstein or Muttenz for an easy train or tram back to Basel.

Meet Dornach Bus Station 1345 (Bus 67 leaves at 1351).
Or at Gempen Dorf 1406.

Trains from Basel 1337 Platform 16.

(Or if people prefer an hour later 1445 at Dornach, Train from Basel at 1437) but it doesn't stay light long past 1700.

Let me know if your interested..I can PM you my number.
RSVP'd Yes: 3 (3 members and No guests)
  • carlottina - Hi Robbster, after our discussion on the tram last night then yes, I'm up for this :) to make the most of the daylight my vote is for 1337 train
  • x-bow - I will be in NE this weekend, but the ICN to Basel is very comfortable. I'm voting also for the 1337 train or, if possible, an earlier one.
  • kim327 - Good morning, Just happened to see this post now. Where are you leaving from? I would be interested in coming, it looks beautiful! Is there a cost for the hike? New to Zurich and haven't don't much sight seeing this winter. Thanks Kim
RSVP'd Maybe: 2 (1 members and 1 guests)
  • JustRose + 1 guest - This is a GREAT idea! If i can get motivated on Sunday morning i will certainly join!

Re: Winter Walk Gempen (nr Basel)

Possibly..but I will found out later today when I go for a lunchtime run..yesterday it was about 10 inches in the open spaces. The trails however should be well trodden...I don't think they would of great help..

Brunch ..I'm also attending..

As for the snow shoes they won't be necessary but if you don't mind carrying them you could bring them for some practice (if you need it that is). Waterproof boots definately though and gaiters may be useful...and need I say warm clothes..

Thanks for mentioning about the brunch - good idea to consume a warm meal before a walk in such weather

Re: Winter Walk Gempen (nr Basel)

I'm so lazy. Doing TWO things in one day? It took me long enough to leave the brunch venue and cycle home on sheets of ice.
