With our trails, we would like to invite you to discover the diversity and beauty of this region and collect unforgettable experiences.

Foxtrail Cyan – Basel City

Follow Fredy’s trail through two different old towns in Basel: at the beginning, you’ll go right through the city centre – past Aeschenplatz, the city’s most important transport hub. At St. Alban-Tor Park, you first discover the historical side of the city and then follow winding paths and bridges to the banks of the Rhine. From there, Cyan takes you further into Kleinbasel’s old town. Enjoy the panoramic view on the Mittlere Brücke for a moment before diving into the Grossbasel Old Town. The city presents itself at its best here with the artistically painted historic town hall and the Gothic Basel Minster. After a short detour to the amusing Tinguely Fountain, the trail ends at Barfüsserplatz.

Foxtrail Jurapark – Frick

A researcher has disappeared in the Jurapark Aargau. Rumour has it that he was looking for an unknown dinosaur species in the municipality of Frick. Was he the victim of a crime? Follow the trail from the town centre towards the town limits and find the clues. If you solve the puzzles, you will end up on a hill in the countryside. Be careful, you will have to enter the dark, damp underworld of Frick to solve the puzzle. The start and finish are approx. 2km (30min walk) apart, no public transport connection back to the start.
