Basel by foot

Thanks to its manageable size, a simple and uncomplicated way to explore the city is by foot. A perfect way to navigate the city is by making use of the blue destination boards, which can be found at all the most important locations in the city centre.

The destination boards display comprehensive maps of the city and can be found at the Swiss Railway station (SBB), the Badischen Bahnhof, Marktplatz, Messeplatz, Schifflände and at the zoo.

There are also five tours of the Old Town, which are also well-marked by blue plaques, providing a wonderful opportunity of discovering the city by foot.
