Oh, now that the spring has finally sprung and the days are not only warmer, but longer too, let’s focus on spending more quality time outside. That doesn’t mean you have to venture far from home, but here are a few tips to make the most of your outdoor experiences.
1. Visit botanical gardens and luckily, if you reside in the Basel area, we have two incredible gardens that are well worth a visit! Oh, and if you haven’t seen the gorgeous Iris gardens in full bloom, they are estimated to be in full bloom in about two weeks. Plan your visit now!
2. Walk around the Rhine. That river has an incredible pull and begs you to linger along her shores. So pack a picnic, bring a bike, or simply walk and bask in the sunlight, enjoy the parks, stop at a museum and frolic because spring is meant for frolicking.
3. Take a hike. This weather is amazing and there is no better time to hike. Find a local trail or hit the Alps (just know that higher elevations will still have lots of snow) and enjoy the mountains.
4. Picnic in the park. There are so many green spaces and awesome parks in Basel, so commit to visiting them all, one at a time.
