All keynote speeches and panel sessions are taking place in the "Grosser Hörsaal" (great lecture hall) on the ground floor of the courtyard building. For more information on the history of the buildings cf. historical note.
Here is how you get there:
- from Basel SBB (Swiss train station)
- from Basel Badischer Bahnhof (German train station)
- from EuroAirport Basel/Mulhouse/Freiburg
The nearest airport is the EuroAirport Basel/Mulhouse/Freiburg. Taxis are expensive in Switzerland, so you may want to check with your hotel about free shuttle bus service. Note that most international flights arrive at Zürich Airport. However, if you book with the airline SWISS, the train fare from Zürich to Basel is included in the fare when choosing Basel as your final destination. Direct trains from Zürich airport to Basel main station leave every hour. You can buy your ticket (approx. CHF 35 for a one-way ticket) at the airport on the train level. (Note: Please make sure you buy your single ticket on the day of use as the ticket is valid only on the day of issuing. Note also that you cannot purchase tickets on the train).
