About Basel Tourism

Basel Tourism was founded in 1890 with the aim of safeguarding and benefiting the health of the city and surrounding region. As an association under civil law, we work closely with the authorities in order to promote and protect the catering and hotel industries and other interested parties associated with the tourism industry in Basel and the surrounding area.

Our main focus is on promoting Basel as a brand in Switzerland and abroad, the creation of offers and services for tourists and business travellers, the imparting of information and mediation services by telephone, e-mail or at the information counter, the opening of our distribution channels to our partners and the general representation of the interests of tourists.
