Basel Airport Mini Guide

The Airport
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 40 pick-up locations so if hiring a car in Basel isn't convenient or you want to return elsewhere in Switzerland we can help.

How Would I get There?
There are flights from most cities in Europe to Basel and some from North Africa. Holiday destinations are well catered for by the budget airlines but of course these flights are often seasonal.

Can I get Into the City Easily?
The BVB bus 50 takes you to the Bahnhof SBB train station if you wish to travel further afield or for being central in town. Hiring a car is an easy option there as the city is just 5 minutes drive from the airport via the A35 highway. The car hire desks can be found in hall 1 level 2 in the French sector and hall 4 level 2 in the Swiss sector.

What’s at the Airport for me?
If you feel a little lost at the airport there is an information desk for all your enquiries on level 2. There you will also find a hotel information desk, should you need somewhere to stay. There are 3 ICE currency exchange counters and 4 ATMs conveniently located around the terminal building. If you wish to check your emails, you can use the internet corner or use the Wi-Fi service – you can buy a prepaid card at Relay.

What if I get Hungry?
For fine dining whilst you wait, go to Restaurant Au 5eme on level 5. Crousti café on level 2 has a selection of freshly made sandwiches and snacks for something lighter. If you are in a hurry, you can get drinks and pre-packed snacks at Grab and Go.

Can I buy my Duty Free There?
Yes, there are a couple of Dufry duty free shops whether you are looking for designer names and fashion or a bottle of kirsch and cigars. Relay has newspapers and magazines for your journey and you can buy books and sweets at K Kiosk. There is also a Petit Casino for grocery items or snacks.

Is There a Hotel at the Airport?
No, but you can stay at the Airport Hotel Basel, its 2.5 km from the airport and they have a shuttle bus service. You can eat a la carte at the hotel’s La Rose Restaurant or La Brasserie in the Grand Casino, next door. There is a sauna and fitness room available for residents to use.

Basel Airport, although named after the Swiss city of Basel, is actually in France. The airport has the names of French, Swiss and German cities in the title and is a great starting place for trips to each of the countries.

Basel airport links directly to the A3 motorway which crosses Switzerland and joins onto the French motorway, the A35, meaning that with a hire car from Basel Airport, a large area is within easy reach. Staying in Basel itself you’ll have the chance to see why the city is renowned as the cultural capital of Switzerland with its many theatres and concert halls.

Customer questions about Basel Airport car hire

Hello, I'd like to check for a car mid size, for 5 people with space for luggage for the 17 of July for 6 days from Basel Airport

Hi, thanks for getting in touch, depending on the amount of luggge you have and the type of driving you plan, I would suggest at least a compact car, but perhaps an estate car to easily handle the luggage, but this is up to you.

I want to hire a car at mulhouse airport and I have 2 questions: 1. I have to drop at 4 am. Is it o.k? any additional costs?

Hi, if you have searched on our website and the cars are showing as available then this is fine, however there might be an out of hours fee but this will be clearly stated at the booking stage where applicable. If you can let me know your rental dates / times I will run a quote and check this for you.
