    The Park is beautiful. In the Park you can do, picnicking, jogging, walking, and that sit in sweet Café (if it is open)

    The Sunday brunch is highly recommended - the selection choice and of good quality, the service is very attentive and very beautiful surroundings in the Park is can't be topped! Reservation is absolutely necessary - the best email, it works great!

  • Lovely place for a weekend stroll.
  • Lovely classy park nestled in a beautiful landscape. The view overlooking downtown Basel is really worth the trip
  • This is a lovely Park on the outskirts of Basel. Take the tram to Riehen and then the bus up the hill. There are two parts to the park. On the right hand side (when coming up the hill) of the road, there is the smaller part with a playground and a fire place. You need to bring your own wood though as there are not that many trees around. There is also a huge field ideal for flying kites or just lounging around on the grass. On the other side, there is the mansion which hosts concerts and private parties, the rose garden, a pond with ducks, a huge area for walking and the cafe in the stables. There, you can also rent a big room for parties. The catering is pretty decent and many weddings are happening here. The highlights is the winter when there is enough snow for sledging. The community places straw balls to protect from all the obstacles and the hill is not that steep so that also younger kids can enjoy it.
  • beautiful - especially in the summertime. for an event such as a wedding or some other party or just for a quick stroll in the park. very very nice.
  • A large, overlooking Park.
