My appartment is close to the fair (5-7 min. walking distance to Basel World), public transport and the city center. You are going to love it, as it´s very specious, comfortable and light. It´s very quite despite beeing in the middle of lively Kleinbasel.
We are Jan (husband), Piet (son) and Nike (baby daughter) and Andrea (myself). Living in Basel for several years. I grew up in the suburbs of Basel and enjoy living in the city a lot. Everything we need is just around the corner. And as we´re living in Kleinbasel, it´s the most lively area of town with shops, cafes, bars and so on. The rivier Rhine is in front of our door, so perfect to have a cool swim in summer. You´ll appreciate too :-) ...where else in a city can you walk out of the door in your swimwear and jump right into the river? Getting out, a nice "buvette" (bar kiosk) is on your disposal for a sundowner or more.
