The life of an expat is a wonderfully exciting and educational experience. But at times it can also be rather frustrating as we deal with the daily challenges of learning a new culture, overcome a language barrier, and struggle to find what we need for our families and our sanities! Our goal with Basel Life Magazine is to help you make the most of your experience as an expat in Basel, however long or short that may be. Ten times a year, we will bring you up-to-date information on what to do in and around the city, focusing on events that are particularly interesting for families with children of all ages. In addition to a detailed description of these events, we are also including a “centerfold” calendar of current events that you can pull out and used as a guide for the month. Additionally, we will make suggestions for outings and activities that are sure to be fun for the whole family, bring you practical information on living in Basel that we have personally gathered in our collective years as Basel expats, introduce you to some Swiss traditions and culture, as well as provide tips on travel, eating out, wine and much more.
So whether you are new to Basel and still trying to find your feet, or have already been living here for some time, we hope that you enjoy reading Basel Life Magazine. As this magazine is written for expats by expats, your feedback is most welcome! So feel free to let us know if the information we present is helpful to you and whether there are any other topics that you would like us to write about.
