Saturday, 01 June

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 can join a guided hike in English along the divide between the rivers Aare and Rhein. The itinerary will take you from Staffelegg, through Hard, Kilholz, Linnerberg, Lindeplatz, ending in Effingen. 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 9:00, with the outgoing journey at 09:11 (IR36 direction Zürich) to Frick, where they transfer to bus 135, arriving at Staffelegg at 10:08 (Passhöhe arrival). Return journey from Effingen at 15:47 (bus 137 to Frick, followed by IR36 to Basel), arriving at 16:48 at Basel SBB.
