Our Thanksgiving Celebration 2022

26 November 2022 – Basel

We welcome you to join The Cornell Club of Switzerland’s 2022 Thanksgiving Celebration held in Basel this year!  The weekend is full of fascinating events to enjoy this beautiful city and the treasures it has to offer.  We will also hold the 36th Annual Meeting which will be followed by a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

Program Overview

The weekend festivities will start on Friday night with an optional informal dinner at the Restaurant Rebhaus where we will enjoy reconnecting over Swiss, Mediterranean, and Italian cuisine. 

The main program will begin on Saturday afternoon with a guided tour in English and German of the permanent collection of the Museum Tinguely. As a pioneer, Jean Tinguely managed to repeatedly reposition his kinetic machine art. He created loud sound spectacles using everyday objects. 

After a break, the AGM will be held at The Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois, followed by our aperitif and traditional gala Thanksgiving dinner. Les Trois Rois is a landmark hotel in Basel and one of the oldest city hotels in Europe, founded in 1681 as an inn for gentlemen, and rebuilt in 1844 as a Grand Hotel. We are thankful to Philippe Clarinval, General Manager and Cornell hotelier, who welcomes us into this historical location.

Be sure to register by 12 November 2022 to ensure a place for you and your family!

We look forward to a great fall event in the cultural capital of Switzerland!

  1. It was a great event. Thanks for organising it!!! The Trois Rois Hotel is beautiful with a great history going back to the 16C! Dinner was deli but even better was the company. We had many lively conversations at our table and it was great to meet Cornellians.
