A lovely walk up the hills to visit the temple and take in the views around, great for listening to the goat bells and really give the feel of peace and tranquillity

Nice enough for a day out with the family. Not far from the small station, the nice walk brings you to the foot of the little castle, and further on to the lakes. Nice for a stroll on a lovely autumn day.

The Ermitage in Arlesheim is surrounded by picturesque hills and as you get near the top, nice views of the surrounding towns and valleys. There is a loop of flatter terrain that goes around a small lake and follows a stream. The paths leading up...More

Lovely place to go walking for couples or with children - the park is huge, and has lots to see and explore. It is very peaceful and tranquil

I feel peaceful when I walk around the small lake. It is quite nice in the late spring and summer, generally a lovely place to walk. The caves and the water are just cool. Good place to go for a think.

The town of Arlesheim (location of Ermitage) is found only 10 minutes outside of Basel City (by car). You can also reach it by tram no. 10 (direction Dornach). Get in at the main station ("Bahnhof SBB") and get out at "Arlesheim Dorf" (takes maybe...More
