Flea markets and Gladiators. Basel this weekend.

If you're stuck for something to do this weekend in the Basel area, here are two things that may be of interest:

First is the Roemerfest. It is held every year in August Raurica and has lots of events planned such as Gladiator combat, chariot rides, Roman cooking etc. It's a fun family event where everyone will learn a little more about the Romans in Switzerland.

Full details including entry prices can be found here.

The second event, which takes place this Sunday is the massive Z7 Flea Market which is held four times a year and is the biggest one of its kind in North east Switzerland.

Here's the address. It is well signposted and there's lots of (free) parking nearby.

Z7 Flohmarkt
Kraftwerkstrasse
4133 Pratteln

Have fun.

Kind regards,

Hi Chardie

The next one is on the 25th October 2009.

This flea market even has its own website. Further details can be found in my earlier post here.

Hey,

Much to my disappointment I realised I am also going to be away for the market in October. Is there going to be another one after October?

Kind regards,

Charde

The one in Pratteln is 25 October, yes.

At Petersplatz in Basel, here is a website which lists all the dates for the Flohmarkt: http://www.messen-maerkte.bs.ch/flohmarkt.htm
