Swiss National Day on the Rhine

Association «Bundesfeier am Rhein»

The 1st of August is Switzerland’s national holiday which in the canton of Basel-Stadt is officially celebrated on the Bruderholz. But Basel traditionally starts its celebrations already on the 31st of July with a big city festival (from 5 pm) and a grand fireworks display (at 11 pm) on the Rhine. More than 90 taverns and stalls as well as numerous music stages and performances create a great atmosphere along the Rhine until 2 in the morning.

The Fischer Club Basel is organising a fun rowing race at the Federal Celebration on the Rhine on 31 July 2022. Teams of four can register until 22 July at: schlagruder.fischer-club.ch
