Welcome to Democrats Abroad in Basel, Switzerland!

We are a diverse team of volunteers committed to helping Americans connect, vote, and engage with US politics in the greater Basel area. We hold a wide range of activities including voter registration, marches, discussion groups, phone banking, potlucks, and fundraisers.

If you are interested in participating, we have monthly business meetings as well as regular social events. To get started, join Democrats Abroad online and then come around in person to one of our events. We look forward to meeting you! And if you are an American citizen, don't forget to register to vote!

Check us out on Facebook as well, and please, get in touch if you have any questions.

    Solitude Park in Basel, Switzerland

    Fourth Annual DACH Rhine Swim & BBQ

    The official Basel Rhine Swim may be canceled this year, but our smaller gathering can still happen. Been wanting to get a Wickelfisch? Wondering what Rhine swimming is all about? Rhine-swimming newbies and experts, join DACH Basel to swim for democracy at our fourth annual Rhine Swim and picnic! 

    We're meeting in the Paul Sacher Anlage AKA Solitude Park (next to Roche & the Tinguely Museum) for a BBQ picnic, followed by a Rhine Swim for those who want to. DA will provide the grills and burgers (veggie and regular), but please bring your own picnic for the rest. Out of consideration for the current health situation, we will not be holding a potluck this year.

    All are welcome! Meet your fellow Democrats in Basel and learn the ins and outs of swimming in the Rhine! Voter Registration volunteers will be on hand to help people register to vote or request their ballots. Don't forget your swimsuit and Wickelfish!
