Basel’s Schützenhaus was established between 1561 and 1564. Until 1899, when the firing range was relocated to Allschwiler Weiher, the Association of Riflemen Basel practiced in front of the Schützenhaus.
Since 1945, the “Schützenhaus” was turned into a restaurant.
The older inhabitants of Basel are filled with enthusiasm when they talk about the Schützenhaus. About the days when the beautiful, listed building was the place to meet, where families came to celebrate and Basel’s top executives lunched.
The chef and his team take great pleasure in preparing gourmet classics originating from French and local Swiss cuisine. You can choose culinary classics, such as entrecote café de Paris, chateaubriand, grilled sea bass or veal liver, or opt for something simpler, such as bratwurst with rösti or a special of the day.
