Formerly described disparagingly as “lesser Basel”, Kleinbasel enjoys immense popularity today. That‘s no wonder, as in fact everything that’s required for happiness can be found here.
A Mediterranean atmosphere on the sun-drenched Rhine bank and lots of life in the area’s squares, streets, bars and restaurants. There are many reasons for getting to know Kleinbasel. New in the district, for example, is Restaurant Trio, right next to the Hotel Basilisk with a view of the lively Klybeckstrasse. The restaurant, with cocktail bar and café, has become a popular new meeting point. Insider shopping tip Bäckerei Kult is also worth a visit. Not only does the world’s oldest bakery constantly produce ever-changing creations, the Kult views itself as a participatory baking hangout and offers a platform for swapping and trying out everyday recipes.
