Schwarzbubenland – The perfect holiday for everyone

Controlling and visualising energy efficiently and precisely, you create best conditions for effective decisions.

Schwarzbubenland, the local holiday area of the Swiss city of Basel, is also referred to as the ‘pearl of Northwest Switzerland’. With its impressive landscape formed by hills, gorges and valleys, it attracts holidaymakers of all kinds. TEXT: INA FRANK

There is much on offer, particularly for sporty visitors. One can discover the many hiking trails or scale the peaks with a bike. Also climbing, skiing and sleighing, Nordic Walking or swimming are popular sports in the area. History enthusiasts can go to see the workshops where old handicraft is still maintained. Moreover, one can explore the region by visiting the many castles, ruins and monasteries, which are partly still actively used.“Culture enthusiasts do not get a raw deal: a visit to the museum for jukeboxes in Seewen or the architecture path around the world-famous Goetheanum in Dornach is well worth it,” says Franziska Müller-Stebler, manager of the association Forum Schwarzbubenland. After an eventful day, one can recharge their batteries in a comfortable hotel, hostel or a straw bed on a farm and enjoy the culinary delights from the region. This summer, guests can look forward to exciting events. The Regional Music Days Erschwil will be opened by the AC/ DC tribute band live/wire in May. A good time to visit for culture enthusiasts will be June, when the Dancing and Music Summer takes place in the Dornach theatre. In August, there will be the summer night festival at the castle Rotberg and other open-air events.
