Restaurants or places that open till late at night

Is there any restaurants or eateries that open till very late at night like 4-5am? Cos I might be transiting at Basel and have a few hours to hang around. Clubs are out of the question since I will my stuff to bring along.

Thanks!

you can find stuff around barfüsserplatz:

www.basel-restaurants.ch/english/index.htm

at what time do you arrive and when do you live? and where?

around the bahnhof, there are two hotels (Victoria and Schweizerhof -ok three the Euler too) that i think remain open all night.

Tak

have a five francs coin on the ready and leave your luggage at the station lockers (located at the basement, by the garage).

then the city is your oyster. :-)

just be aware that the station remains closed after the last train and before the first one.But if you are coming and leaving from the same station (Basel SBB) as seems to be the case if you are coming from Stuttgart, then that will be no problem.

Where is the Excalibur exactly?

Is there any place close by to the station that I can walk to easily from Basel SBB? I am actually looking for some place to sit around (not too expensive) and eat something as I rest before my next train.

Rest Klingental sounds good too. But it closes at 3am.

restaurant Klingenthal is further away, you can it is about a 20 minutes walk.

I do not know where Excalibur is exactly but Barfüsserplatz is about 10 minutes walk from the railroad and there around are many restaurants and bars.

Plus the two hotels at the station stay open -I think _all night (Hotel Victoria and Hotel Schweizerhof)

this one stays until 02:00

www.papajoes.ch/basel/deutsch/index.php

and more you can find here:

www.baizer.ch/restaurantfuehrer/index.html

the problem is that few stay open until 05:00 non- stop. you might want to go to a restaurant first and then to a bar.
