How do I find a place to live in Basel?

Answer this Question

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered...

"Basel is Switzerland's third most populous city and is known for being a cultural and commercial hub. You can find a variety of housing options in Basel. Renting an apartment is a popular choice among expats. You can search for apartments on popular housing websites like housinganywhere.com and homelike.com. Alternatively, there are also many websites that specialize in finding apartments in a specific city, such as baselapartments.ch. You can also visit one of the various real estate agents in Basel in order to look for rental apartments or houses. There is also a selection of furnished apartments available for short-term stays. Finally, if you are a student, you can consider living in a student residence or dorm," said another expat in Basel, Switzerland.

"I used a relocation agent who showed me multiple neighborhoods and described pros/cons. I then asked colleagues what they thought and went for their recommendations," wrote a member who made the move to Basel, Switzerland.
