Welcome to AWC Basel! Please join us, whether you are new to Basel or just new to the idea of American Women’s Clubs.

We are here to help people successfully adjust to life in Switzerland. Arriving in a new country or establishing a network in a new city can be overwhelming, especially when the language may not be your own. Join us at one of our Reach Out & Welcome (ROW) events. We are looking forward to meeting you!

 Reach Out and Welcome (ROW)

We host two monthly opportunities for you to meet new and current AWC members. Our morning and evening gatherings are open and recommended for anyone interested in joining AWC. ROW always welcomes AWC members, family and friends. It is a great way to connect with members and meet new people.

On the second Tuesday of each month, except in July and August, join us at L’angolo di vino located at St. Alban-Graben 1. We meet at 7:00 pm for drinks and casual conversation. The location is conveniently located near the Bankverien and Kunstmuseum tram stops. Spouses, partners, and friends are always welcome. Please visit the club calendar to find the next ROW night.

To reach out to someone, please contact our Membership Chair at We would love to see you there!
