The campus is close to the Johanniterbrucke, so you can also choose a riverside hotel on either bank of the Rhine.

Explore the University’s Botanical Gardens

Even if you’re not travelling to visit it, you may still want to stay near the University of Basel, because it’s home to a unique green space in the heart of the city. Behind its main building you’ll find the Botanical Gardens, one of the oldest gardens of its kind in the world. It offers a multilingual audio tour to guide you around its outdoor displays and the large collection of plants in its four greenhouses.

As you’re wandering round the tranquil spaces, look out for the famous collections of cacti and orchids and check out the domed Victoriahaus, which was built in 1898 specifically for the giant water lily Victoria. And on days when the sun isn’t shining on Basel, head to the heated tropical house for a taste of life in the rainforest.
