Important Additional Information
Basel is one of the European continent’s most convenient locations for scientific meetings. The Swiss city is easily accessible by plane or high-speed trains.
Situated on the banks of the river Rhine, where the Swiss, French and German borders converge, Basel is a unique and fascinating city full of charm. A city where everything runs like clockwork – yet with a multicultural character to which it owes its emphatically cosmopolitan and innovative reputation.
The border town delights visitors with its wealth of cultural, relaxing and indulgent experiences –you can enjoy one of the many museums, culinary discovery tours or the heart of Basel's vibrant nightlife.
The Bildungszentrum 21 is located centrally in Basel but in a quiet, private park. From the outside, the building looks like a large 19th century English manor house and with its old trees surrounding the building it provides a relaxed atmosphere for the IICW.
