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 clothing, as the climate is generally cool and wet. A good raincoat and umbrella are essential, as well as a good pair of shoes for walking on the cobblestone streets. It is also important to bring a few items to make your new home feel like home, such as pictures, books, and other personal items. Additionally, it is important to bring any necessary documents, such as a passport, visa, and other important paperwork. Finally, it is important to bring any necessary medications, as well as any other items that you may need for your new life in Basel," commented one expat who made the move to Basel, Switzerland.
