Learn more about Basel


Basel, the "cultural capital of Switzerland". Basel or the "university city". These nicknames perfectly describe this city in northwestern Switzerland.


With 167,000 inhabitants, Basel is the third largest city Switzerland. This figure can rise a lot (830,000) if we consider the Eurodistrict. A few words can’t describe Basel, as its rich culture and history is so important, but also the city’s desires to highlight its many opportunities for entertainment and relaxation. Nevertheless, the notoriety of the city is enhanced by its two major events: the Baselworld, an annual fair dedicated to watchmaking and jewelery; and Art Basel, the largest annual fair for contemporary art in Europe.


The economy of the city of Basel ranges around 2 main businesses: the chemical industry, and finance, including banks and insurance companies. Biotechnology also is another domain in full development. Basel is the center of the "BioValley", gathering biotechnology and research companies in the three-countries triangle (Switzerland, Germany and France). This geographical and strategic location has enabled nearly 7,000 borders to work in the field of chemistry. Those borders occupy about 12% of the working population in the Basel district.


We have selected the best accommodations and services, close to major business centers.
