Welcome to Basel




This year EuroPython is split in two locations. For the workshops and sprints we are at the FHNW Muttenz Campus and for the main conference we are in the Congress Center Basel. More info can be found in the Venue Section.

Come to Basel

If you are travelling by air, you can reach the city via EuroAirport or nearby Zurich Airport. It's very easy to plan your journey via the three railway stations and the major motorways. And for the very adventurous: cruise ships travel down the Rhine to Basel every day. More information about getting to Basel can be found in the Come to Basel Section.


As a hotel or airbnb guest in the city of Basel, you benefit from the BaselCard, which allows you to use the public transport network for free during the entire duration of your stay.
We created some hotel recommendations with direct links to the hotels in the Accommodation Section.


Switzerland is part of Schengen. More information, including how to get an invitation letter can be found in the VISA Section.
