Various Locations

Saturday, 20 July

See and experience the Swiss hiking landscape in a different light—in the moonlight! On guided hikes, participants can immerse themselves in a nocturnal world that has much more to offer than long shadows and sparkling stars. The non-profit organization Schweizer Wanderwege launched the Schweizer Wandernacht (Swiss Hiking Night) in 2006. Since then, hundreds of participants each year put on their hiking boots when day gives way to night and the full moonlight shows the way.
This 18th edition of the Swiss Hiking Night will take place from Saturday, July 20, to Sunday, July 21, and offers over 60 guided hikes in all four language regions (for the list, go to https://www.wandernacht.ch/de/wanderungen/#grid-filter). The offers range from walks at sunset to demanding night walks for the ambitious hiker. Choose from family-friendly hikes with BBQ, fondue, or accmpanied by llamas, to art hikes, photography hikes, night hikes with boat tour, and hikes through the forest or through a gorge. The hikes can be selected by region, duration, and suitability for families; they are all posted on their website.
One night hike in Baselland this year will have you hiking and swimming on the Wisenberg. This hike starts in front of the Bad Ramsach Quellhotel at 18:00. Through lush mixed forests and over gentle hills, you will reach the Wisenbergmatte, and shortly afterwards, you can gaze into the distance from the Wisenberg observation tower—the panoramic view over the Mittelland to the Alps, Vosges, and Black Forest is spectacular! A drink and snack at the summit will complete the beautiful experience. The descent leads over the historic Homburg to Bad Ramsach, with torches and many unforgettable impressions. Once there, the hike ends with a bath in the jacuzzi. For this hike, you should bring a backpack, good shoes, clothing suitable for the weather, bathing suit, flashlight, drinks, and possibly a small snack for the journey. This particular hike starts at 18:00 and lasts 2.5 hours. Cost per person is CHF 54 for adults and CHF 43 for children (recommended for ages 12 and up); register by July 11.
