Basel Airport Mini Guide

Euro Airport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg is 6km from the city centre of Basel, Switzerland. Mulhouse in France is 22km away and the German town of Freiburg is 70km. It is unusual in that the airport is owned by France, Germany and Switzerland, essentially a Swiss/German airport on French ground! The airport is split into two sectors for travellers from and into France and Switzerland. We can arrange car rental in Switzerland from over forty pick-up locations so if hiring a car in Basel isn't convenient or you want to return elsewhere in Switzerland we can help.
