Exercise Outdoors in Basel’s Parks This Summer
If exercising outdoors in the beautiful parks of the Basel region with a large group of people sounds like a great way to get or stay in shape, this is for you! Gsünder Basel (Healthier Basel), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion of good health for people in the Basel area, is organizing a variety of classes under the motto “Aktiv! im Sommer” to keep you fit this summer. Thanks to support from the canton Basel-Stadt, their main sponsor Hirslanden Klinik Birshof, and other generous sponsors and partners, all of these classes are free of charge. You can join in any time; no registration is necessary, simply show up and jump in! The PDF below lists the available classes by day of the week. They offer a variety of classes suitable for all levels—something for everyone!
Additionally, Gsünder Basel will again be offering a summer program called “Aktiv! mit Verein” (Active with Clubs). This open-air offer is free to the interested public and is aimed at giving sports clubs the unique opportunity to present their passion to a broader audience and likewise for those interested in sports to be able to try out the sports and activities that various clubs have to offer, without any obligation. This program will take place in two locations—in Schützenmattpark on Monday evenings and in Kannenfeldpark on Tuesday evenings. Each club will be present for three consecutive weeks (see the pdf for a detailed schedule). So why not check them out and learn about various sports and their Basel-based clubs, including fitness boxing, running techniques, Korfball, ultimate frisbee, sword fighting, sepak takraw, and taekwondo.
