Saison Opening at the three country corner



Participants and Results








The opening course of this year’s Swiss Skate Tour runs through the old town of Basel, along the Rhine. Start and finish are centrally located on the marketplace. From there, skate through the closed pedestrian zone in the direction of the large shopping street, down to the Rhine, across the Schwarzwaldbrücke, passingt the Tinguely Museum and the imposing Roche Tower; back over the Middle Brigde to the Marketplace. As always, the skaters can choose between different distances and categories. Decide for yourself how far and how fast you want to skate through the city this Sunday morning!

For the youngest kids there is KidsOnSkates, after that everyone can skate the mini or kids track. We are also looking forward to many guests from Germany and France! Lets Skate In The City!

City Skate Basel is an evaluation stage of the Baden-Württemberg-Cup (BWIC)

Basel is is worth to visit for a few more days! With our partner hotel Swissotel Basel you can book special conditions with the indication “City Skate Basel”.

Swissotel BaselBasel is not only a Swiss city with a big heart, with a smile on their face people from Basel proudly declare it a major city in pocket size format and they are right. The city by the Rhine offers everything you could wish for in a city trip. Culture and business go hand in hand while the Blackforest is only a stone’s throw away. The same holds true should you decide to stay at the Swissotel Basel (4**** superior) where you will encounter elegant guest rooms and real Swiss hospitality.

For our German participant we recommend the Carahotel at Basel/Weil am Rhein.
