About the location
Basel lies in the heart of Europe, on both banks of the Rhine. The city is the centre of the idyllic border triangle of France, Germany and Switzerland – lying between the Swiss Jura, Germany’s Black Forest and the Vosges in Alsace.
Basel is easy to get to. Only a 10-minute drive from the city centre, Basel’s EuroAirport is served by a number of international airlines. Together with neighbouring Zurich Airport, it enjoys connections to all European airports and to more than 200 intercontinental destinations.
Located in the centre of Europe, Basel is a major transportation hub. Its three railway stations not only offer excellent connections to far and wide but are also all situated in the very heart of the city.
