*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings

Non-cyclists: At the market (see map link above) from around 10:45.

After some shopping at the market we'll go to Cafe Literarie for coffee (and cake for me!), then on to Geant Casino for more food shopping. Of course, you can leave whenever you like!


Market to cafe to supermarket is easily walkable for those not cycling. To get to the market in the first place, either take tram 11 to St Louis Grenze and walk over the border or the French "Distri" bus (pay in Euros as you enter to the driver) from Schifflände all the way to St Louis.

Well i don't think the St. Louis amber beer we found in Geant wasn't the same as the one at the Cafe. I like them both but they are different - i need to find out what one the Cafe served - maybe their own??

Thanks for organising a wonderful trip. What an outing! Future trips to St Louis without lunch at Cafe Literaire would be incomplete.

Re: St Louis coffee and food shopping (from Basel)

The lunch was wonderful; I've seen the food there often enough (watching people eat whilst having my coffee and cake) but this was the first time I actually ordered. I still had a coffe and cake first - got to stick to the routine!

Weather was (and still is) wonderful and the market was busy and full of stalls.
