Saturday, 21 September

Everybody has seen the yellow hiking trail markers in Switzerland. But hardly anyone wonders who is responsible for them. The marked Swiss hiking trail network is around 65,000 km, which is about 1.5 times the circumference of the earth. Behind this professional service is a great deal of volunteer work done in cantonal organizations, supported by the umbrella organization “Schweizer Wanderwege.” In the cantons of Basel-Stadt and Basellandschaft, the “Wanderwege beider Basel” association is responsible for these tasks. About 50 volunteers also offer other services for hikers, such as guided hikes in various parts of Switzerland as well as in Alsace and the Black Forest, including some in English.
On this day, you will be guided to a haunted place with a great view. The itinerary will take you from Seewen, through to Seetalhöhe, Unterackert, Dietel, Brang, Häxeblätz, Asp, and ending in Bretzwil. Your experienced hiking guide, Hanspeter Preiswerk, who has worked in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry for many years, will be leading this free hike.
Participants should bring their own food and drink, hiking boots, and suitable clothing for the weather.
Meeting place is at Basel SBB at 9:30, with the outgoing journey at 09:37 (via Grellingen, bus 116), arriving at Seewen at 10:03 (Seetalhöhe arrival). Return journey from Bretzwil Dorf at 14:36 (bus 111 to Liestal), arriving at 15:27 at Basel SBB.
Participation in the hike is free; purchase your own train tickets or ride free with the U-ABO. Register directly with your guide at 079 395 9758 or by September 18.
