Reliving a 500-year Basler Tradition at the Herbst Messe

If there is one thing that Basel is famous for, it is the Herbst Messe. This 550 year tradition of fun and amusement is one of Basel’s lasting cultural heritage.


The Bellevue

Breathtaking views of Basel, from this popular ferris wheel, a main attraction at the fair, for the young and young at heart.

EXPERT TIP: Ride the Bellevue just before the Blue Hour and go for 2 rounds to capture that magical sunset view of Basel from the top. No drones, just you, your camera, shot with your own hands and a fun ferris wheel experience.

Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.
— Marc Riboud

The Herbst Messe is a real city-wide family entertainment that transforms Basel Stadt into a massive arcade packed with fun, adrenaline-inducing rides, gaming booths and sugar-loaded carnival food, designed to fuel your energy to cover this huge pop up playground.

Follow us as we experience the Basel Herbst Messe 2019… every hundredth second of this 2-week autumn love affair.
