What should I pack when moving to Basel?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Basel to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Basel, it is important to pack warm clothes, including sweaters and thicker jackets, as well as a raincoat and umbrella. A good quality sleeping bag is essential if you are moving abroad and living in temporary accommodation. Basic kitchen equipment and utensils should also be taken, as well as a few electrical items such as a laptop and charging cables. If you are shooting film, packing a few spare rolls is a good idea. Don't forget to bring some books, a Swiss map and guide book, a Swiss dictionary, and any important documents. Lastly, pack your sense of adventure and get ready to explore Basel," wrote a member who made the move to Basel, Switzerland.
