An extremely accessible location in the centre of Europe
In the border triangle where Switzerland, France and Germany meet, at what’s known as the Rhine’s knee, lies Basel: a modern city with historical and international flair. Basel is Switzerland’s second-largest business hub after Zurich. From here, international companies and innovative research institutes operate on a global scale.
Despite its size, Basel is one of the most significant cities for art and culture worldwide. Important trade fairs and conferences (such as Art | Basel) make the city an international trade centre. Because of its central location in Europe, the city is a transport hub for most major cities which can be easily reached in a short amount of time by train or plane from the EuroAirport nearby.
