Bueno saber




Thanks to its size Basel is easily and enjoyably walkable. To get around faster you can use the dense public transport system and take the tram or bus.
The cheapest ticket (if you like to move spontaneously or just for short distances) costs CHF 2.30 and is valid for up to 4 stops (CHF 11.- if you buy the ticket valid for 6 trips). Otherwise you do well buying a ticket for zone 10 which includes almost the whole city, it costs CHF 3.80. If you plan to use public transportation all day long, you can buy a ticket called “Tageskarte”, it includes Basel and its suburbs for the price of CHF 9.50. Children from age 6 to 16 get a discount on the ticket prices. Children under the age of 6 are traveling for free.







- Smoking is prohibited in all indoor public places (although in some places this prohibition is neither adhered to nor sanctioned; sometimes there may be fumoirs where you can officially smoke indoors)
- You can drink the water from nearly all fountains, of which there are many in the city.
- Although Basel is a manageable-sized city, many different cultures meet and live together peacefully here.
- Although the Rhine is a tempting place to cool off on hot summer days, you should go only go in the river if you are a good swimmer and stick to the swimming areas as indicated on the information signs.
- Baaseldytsch – the Swiss German dialect in Basel – is perceived as unattractive by many in the rest of Switzerland, but the Basel locals are very proud of their language.
