Intro

The «Erlen Skate» circuit takes you from Badischer Bahnhof in Basel past the Eglisee water park and the Pumpwerk skater park to the beautiful Lange Erlen recreational area which continues on to the German city of Weil am Rhein.

Description

The path leads from Badischer Bahnhof in Basel to Surinam. But never fear: you do not have to travel to the Atlantic North coast of South America, but rather comfortably roll along the Basel district by the same name «Im Surinam». You can plan a refreshing stop at the Eglisee water park. It was established in 1911 and is Basel's oldest bath.

Back on the route, the journey continues across the Wiese plain and along the river of the same name in the direction of Riehen. Originally, this area between Riehen, Basel and Weil used to be pasture landscape that was characterised by stream courses from the Wiese River. Shortly before reaching the border at Weil am Rhein (D), there is another opportunity to cool off at the natural pool of Riehen. It was designed by Herzog & de Meuron and also has a café with indoor and outdoor areas.

After crossing the border, the route continues along the neighbourhood of "Altweil", which has been settled since Roman times, to the former site of the "Grün 99" state garden show, and past one of the first buildings by the British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, "LF One". Afterwards, the last part of the circuit takes you past Tierpark Lange Erlen. This zoo is specialised in domestic animals and open daily (free admission). You can return to Badischer Bahnhof via Im Surinam.

An enjoyable tour includes the careful planning of the same. Please inform yourself in advance at the local information center about the route and weather conditions. Depending on the season and weather conditions, this route may be blocked or interrupted
