About this Basel Tour
Want to combine fitness and sightseeing? You can explore beautiful Basel on foot with an enthusiastic local guide and some new running buddies. Let's hit the streets for an active and healthy alternative to the typical sightseeing tour.
Jogging through the art capital of Basel is a fabulous way to see the sights while working up a bit of a sweat. Most of the streets in Old Town are free of cars, so you can pick up the pace and enjoy the lively spirit of historic Barfusserplatz, the main square. Catch your breath as your guide tells you about the striking16th-century Rathaus (town hall), the magnificent twin-towered Munster (cathedral), and whatever else catches your eye.
Depending on the tour you choose, you can also take in Basel's stunning modern buildings designed by big names like Frank O. Gehry and Mario Botta. Or see a whimsical approach to art at the Tinguely Museum's fountain, filled with mechanical sculptures at play. Naturally, your runner-guide knows the best route, and views, along the Rhine. Keen to run across one of those famous bridges? Let's go!
Whatever route you take, you'll always remember jogging through the sights, sounds, and smells that make Basel one of the most vibrant cities in the world. You'll wind up energized, your heart pumping happily, your lungs filled with fresh air. And you won't have to think twice about indulging in Basel's legendary leckerli (sweet, spicy cookies) or some of that heavenly chocolate.
Eat and run
Energy drink, protein bar, or trail mix? Whatever you reach for before a run, there's a tasty new way to fuel up. Chocolate! It's not only delicious, it's a good source of phytochemicals, the health-protective compounds found in fruit and vegetables. A study of runners who ate a chocolate bar before their run found it helped boost stamina and improve recovery. And you're in the perfect spot to test this. Sweet.
