It's that time again when Basel celebrates the arrival of autumn with its festive celebration. Herbstmesse will celebrate its 550th anniversary this year (gulp) with celebrations taking place in Barfüsserplatz, Messeplatz, Münsterplatz, Peterplatz, Rosentalanlage, Kasernenareal and Claraplatz. The entire city will be celebrating this fabulous event!
Herbstmesse will kick-off on Saturday, October 23rd and will conclude on Sunday, November 7th. For families, we can highly recommend Münsterplatz, Barfüsserplatz and Peterplatz. With rides, balloons, food and easy access, these areas are not to be missed. Prepare yourself for crowds and know this event typically attracts visitors from the neighboring countries.
