What is a typical expat home or apartment like in Basel?

Answer this Question

We asked expats what a typical home or apartment in Basel is like. They answered...

"Expat homes and apartments in Basel vary based on personal preference and budget. On the more affordable end of the spectrum, furnished studio apartments average around 17 to 25 square meters and one bedroom apartments range from 32 to 45 square meters. Typical features in all apartments include a living area, kitchenette, bathroom, and balcony or terrace. Most apartments come with basic furniture, appliances and fixtures, though some may require additional purchases, such as major appliances or kitchen utensils. Many are furnished but, if they are not, they are generally smaller and provide just a sink, kitchenette and basic furniture. Utilities and internet access, which is available in all areas of Basel, are typically included in the price of some, but not all, apartments," remarked another expat in Basel, Switzerland.

"A multi-level city apartment in the center of town. No. It is hard to find an apartment like this. They are highly desirable and usually are taken by Swiss citizens," said a member in Basel, Switzerland.
