Basel, situated in the north of Switzerland and in the centre of Europe, is an exhibition and congress city where everything is close to hand. Messe Basel and the Congress Center are located at the heart of the city. The old town, shopping streets and numerous museums and parks are within easy walking distance and just a few minutes away by public transport.


By Rail

Basel is an international rail hub with direct ICE, IC and EC connections to Germany, Austria, Italy, France and the Benelux countries. Messe Basel can be reached in five to ten minutes from the three railway stations in Basel: SBB (Switzerland), SNCF (France) (Frankreich) and DB (Badischer Bahnhof, Germany)

By Air

s from the three railway stations in Basel: EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg is 15 minutes by car from Messe Basel. Basel municipal transport’s No. 50 bus additionally provides a straightforward connection from the airport to the SBB/SNCF railway station. From there, tram No. 1 or 2 will take you directly to Messeplatz/Exhibition Square.

From Zurich Airport a direct rail connection will bring you to the SBB/SNCF railway station in Basel in less than an hour.
