In 2019, an innovation site – Smart City Lab Basel – was established on the Wolf site, close to the Swiss SBB railway station, by the canton of Basel-Stadt in cooperation with Swiss Federal Railways (SBB). The former warehouses and outdoor areas of the Wolf site are now a place where over 60 partners from the business, scientific and administrative communities work on innovative projects that will promote sustainable urban growth, in particular in the areas of mobility and logistics, through cooperation, communication and sharing knowledge.
You can experience innovation in person on a tour of the Smart City Lab Basel, where you can visit start-ups such as upVolt, Natürlich Unverpackt and the KurierZentrale. Be inspired by their environmentally friendly concepts, which focus on recycling and upcycling, plastic-free shopping and consumption, and promoting sustainable mobility with bicycle deliveries. Discover the community space and test space – the workshops and think tanks of the Smart City Lab Basel partners. In the exhibition space, you can find information on a range of different pilot projects and an architectural model of the planned urban development of the Wolf freight depot into Switzerland’s smartest site.
The Smart City Lab Basel also has its own event space, where events on the theme of smart cities are held regularly. You can also rent the roughly 1000 m2 space for your own event.
Discover a whole new Wolf freight depot and join us to experience the Basel of tomorrow today.
