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.


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!


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


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.


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.


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