What we're about

New to the area or looking to expand your social circle?

The Basel Area Social & Sports Meetup creates and promotes a mix of social and sports activities where people can get connected, plug into the community, contribute talents and meet new friends.

Since most people on the site are new to the area I'd like to also tell you about some other great social networking sites that helped me to meet new people and get involved. I'm still new here so if you have found something please post it and share with the others.

Visit to the observatory

Sternwarte Margarethen

Every Friday evening the observatory is open to the public. This means that all interested can walk in, a registration is not required. However, it's open only with clear, cloudless skies and temperatures above freezing. Therefore during the winter is better to call them before attending and check if they are open!!! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Please note: It’s still a crazy corona time, so better call them before attending and be sure they are open. Last communication with the observatory: Wir können zur Zeit nicht absehen, wann die Sternwarte wieder geöffnet werden kann. Die Bindehaut am Auge ist eine Eintrittspforte für Viren wie die Nasen- und Rachenschleimhaut. Und wenn nun mehrere Leute am Teleskop abwechselnd ihre Augen am Teleskop halten, wäre das gegen alle Vorsichtsmassnahmen. Die Sternwarte kann also erst wieder öffnen, wenn kein Ansteckungsrisiko mit COVID-19 mehr besteht ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The telescopes are in the dark, parents are responsible for their children. Please choose warm clothes and shoes. Groups and school classes can NOT be received on Friday evening. Please refer to the section "Private groups and school classes". Opening: Winter time CET: from 20:00 - 22:00 Summer time CEST: from 21:00 to 23:00 other infos under the following link http://www.astronomie-basel.ch/besuch-der-sternwarte.html N.B.: I'll attend spontaneously if they will open again, so please free to organise yourselves after your convenience.

Yoga Class / Calming and Energising

Maya´s Fitness Studio

You are most welcome to come to my Hatha Yoga class. I help people into the poses, correct the poses and talk about the benefits of the poses. I give the option of doing the easy and more difficult versions of the poses. No two classes are the same. Please note that I have several "regular" participants, they do not sign up via meetup so even if there is only one participant registered on meetup there will be other people at the class. The class is suitable for men and women, beginners to intermediate. It is a small friendly international group. There are about 4-7 people who come on a regular basis. Price: CHF 25.00 per class attended. No membership. Warm regards Ann http://www.blissfulyoga.ch
