550 Years of Herbstmesse in Basel

 

A highlight of the Basel Area in the Fall, the Herbstmesse (‘Autumn Fair’) is a central event marking a turning point in the year, the change of season, and is typically celebrated with rides and regional culinary specialties.
This year the Herbstmesse celebrated its 550th anniversary – a good reason to visit with our fellow alumni of the region. On 7th of November 2021, we went for a Glühwein (mulled wine) and something to eat to the Petersplatz, where various craftsmen were displaying their work and products.

It was a lot of fun with old and new faces joining!
