Established in 1753, this is the most traditional place to get a “Läckerli” – Basel’s famous sweet treat.

Shopping

They have some great local words for “shopping” in Basel: “lädelen” or “schneuggen”. The shops themselves also offer plenty of variety. And they are all close together, so the best way to explore them is on foot. Bargain hunters and fashionistas will feel right at home in the shopping streets of the city centre, plus there are plenty of boutiques with new labels and innovative concept stores to browse in the neighbouring streets. At the Marktplatz and the district markets, it’s best to get up early to get your pick of the diverse regional products on display here. On Saturdays, you will see people coming back from the flea market on Petersplatz with the treasures they bought.
