The Basel Autumn Fair (Basler Herbstmesse) starts at 12 o’clock on the Saturday before October 30th, every year, and is on for about two weeks. This will be the 546th Herbstmesse in Basel; no that’s not a typo – the first Basel Herbstmesse took place way back in 1471! Lots has changed since then, and this year there is even a mobile phone app (search your app store for Basler Herbstmesse). The app contains maps and information about each of the different exhibition grounds (see below). Download it and use it to find your way to your favorite food, ride or game!
