About us

Room Escape Basel

We are a mixed crowd consisting of a software developer (Dirk), an electrical engineer (Lukas), an economist (Felix), a scenery builder (Oliver), and a head of events and administration (Kathrin). Additionally, several creative and diligent game masters (mostly students of many different disciplines) ensure the operational business on-site.

Quo vadimus?

We did not only bring the concept of Room Escape to Basel, we also created outstanding experiences thanks to the great scenery and the newest technologies.

For our customers we provide THE adventure as a leisure and team event activity of the next generation. Yesterday, now, and tomorrow!


The founding of the Sherlock LLC in April leads us to the beginning of the construction work in the former brewery Warteck.

The first game in “The Library” takes place in August. At that time, Room Escape Basel is the only Escape Room provider in the surrounding of Basel. Throughout Switzerland, only three other scenarios exist.

The “Basler Original” is still visited frequently.

The second scenario, “The Art Gallery” is opened. As the first one, it is also located in the Warteck building. The people are sent to a mission to find one of the most valuable diamonds in the world &ndahs;- “The Eye of Horus”

The scenario has been dismantled in June 2018.
