Here at LifeInBasel.com, we are dedicated to providing quality information which you will need, if you are considering moving to Basel, Switzerland or have already moved to Basel from a different country or city. Our purpose in creating this site is to make it the most honest and valuable resource of its kind on the web.
I am an expat from Canada who has been living in Basel for the last 12 years. I’ve done an internship in Basel, got my PhD at the University of Basel, as well as working in both multinational and smaller companies in the city. I created this site so expats moving to Basel or living here currently, could get a balanced, honest perspective. There are other sites with information about Basel on the web, but unlike tourism or business stimulus based sites, this resource will try to show the city from a more balanced perspective, highlighting both positive and negative aspects.
We want our information to be both accurate and complete.
The choice to move to Basel will have a major impact your life, and the life of anyone who joins you. It’s critical you have the key facts at your disposal in order to make an informed decision. If you have already taken the step of moving to Basel, this site will provide resources that will help you navigate the city and to have a safe and enjoyable time in Basel.
