Travel Information




Basel will astonish you: its central location, first-class transport connections and infrastructure as well as the compactness of the city make Basel one of the most important exhibition and congress cities in Europe. The Congress Center Basel is located in the heart of the City of Basel, right next to Messe Basel, surrounded by a wide range of outstanding restaurants and good shopping opportunities. The well-preserved historic old town, which is well-known throughout Europe, and Basel‘s location on the Rhine make for a wide range of leisure activities and accompanying programmes in three different countries: Switzerland, France (Alsace) and Germany (Black Forest.)
