Where to stay in Basel

Business-oriented Basel offers an overwhelming amount of mid-range hotels catering to its business clientele. The city fills up during conferences and events, so be sure to plan accordingly. There are a number of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts too, but they tend to be pretty pricey. You'll find a handful of budget-friendly hostels just south of the city core. Keep in mind that as you move toward the outskirts of town for affordable accommodation, proximity to the train stations will be key. The good news is that a number of the hotels include public transport passes with the cost of a room.

  • Good museum, but you have to read a lot at a pecial exhibition.
  • Very nice historical museum in an old monastery church. The museum has recently been re-furbished and features now a very atmospheric exhibition in the lower floor. The exhibitions also features a number of interactive stations, well suitable to visit with kids. There are changing special exhibition with a lot of context to the present.
  • The highest valuable historical museum in the city.
  • Shockingly unfriendly and extremely unhelpful woman at the entrance desk this afternoon. No wonder this museum is in such a scandalous financial situation!
  • Great place to spend a few hours learning about the history of Basel. Lookout for the dance of death area.
