Practical information

City Ticket:

In most hotels you will be given a mobility ticket which enables you to travel around the city (bus/tram) for free. A map with all public transport lines can you find here.

Dinner:

We offer you a balanced lunch. Dinner in the restaurants in Basel is a bit more expensive. We therefore recommend that you do it like the locals do: buy something to eat and drink in the supermarket (Coop, Denner, Migros) – and possibly also at one of the numerous buvettes – and sit down by the Rhine. A cozy holiday mood is guaranteed!

Electricity:

Switzerland has specific power sockets (type J or SEV1011) so please remember to bring a travel adapter for recharging your electronic equipment.

Emergencies:

In case of medical emergency, dial 144 (ambulance), in case of suspected poisoning, dial 145, police tel. 117, fire department tel. 118. If you need a pharmacy, so there is not far from our venue the TopPharm Apotheke Hersberger (Spalenberg 41).

Swimming in the Rhine:

In summer, the Rhine invites you to swim, but also carries risks. Note the currents and moving ships / boats and do not swim alone. Take advantage of our “Swimming in the Rhine” offer.

Water:

There is no need to buy bottled water, the tap water in Basel and all Switzerland is drinkable. The public fountains in the city also provide drinking water.

Wifi:

There will be an event WLAN account made available at the conference.
