Beautiful Views

The Autäli begins behind the Drei Brunnen retirement community and past the allotment gardens. The natural habitat invites you to make an initial stop. This is followed by a steep ascent past one of Riehen's few farms. Continuing through the forest and along the edge of the woods, you then reach Bettingen. But this variant of the route misses Riehen's beautiful Mittelfeld. To see Riehen's Mittelfeld, head right past an "Achtung Schiessstand" (warning: shooting range) sign and follow a steep path. Here you can enjoy views of the agricultural Moostal and far beyond Riehen to the Alsatian Vosges and the Belchen Mountain in the Black Forest. A few steps lead past the Wenkenköpfli, through the forest and down into Wenkentäli, where you enter a large, English-style park called Wenkenpark. There is a mix of shaded places under old groves and expansive lawns – perfect for rest and play. Finally, you can also enjoy the views of nearby Basel at Wenkenross.
