Basel Cuisine

A small hard gingerbread style biscuit, Basel Leckerli is a prominent part of Basel cuisine with its incredible flavor, seasoned with spices like cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and with delicious flavors such as honey, candied citrus, almonds or hazelnuts and a cherry liqueur. These biscuits can be found in Basel restaurants year-round but are especially popular during Christmas.

Traditionally served during the Carnival Fasnacht, which starts on the Monday after Ash Wednesday and lasts three days and essentially shuts down the city except for anything food and beverage, the Basler Mehlsuppem, translated to flour soup, is a simple, hearty broth topped with grated cheese. Its color comes from toasting flour with butter. During the three-day festival, both locals and visitors alike consume the soup by the gallons. To experience this magical city for yourself, make sure to book the next flight to Basel from Corendon Airlines and start your journey.
