Car Hire for Exploring Basel

Car rental is a great way to get out and about into the beautiful landscapes and welcoming towns and villages within easy reach of Basel. Switzerland is a country known for its stunning mountains and pristine countryside, and while the soaring peaks of the Alps are a good few hours’ drive away beyond Lucerne and Interlaken, there’s also plenty to see closer at hand.

Basel Car Rental Made Easy

Hiring a car in Basel can be organised before you travel, so you can pick up your car when you arrive at EuroAirport and easily get on the road to your destination. Head south from Basel into the Laufental valley, where there’s some great walking country within 30-40 minutes’ drive of the city.

For really magnificent views, drive further south into the Jura hills and the Three-Lakes district, where you can stop off in the historic towns of Solothurn, Murten and Biel – the centre of Switzerland’s famous clock-making industry. Or use your rental car to take in impressive views around Sissach, a 20-minute drive south east of Basel.

Discover Three Countries by Rental Car

Thanks to Basel’s location right on the border triangle where Switzerland, France and Germany meet, hiring a car not only opens up the northwest of Switzerland, but about an hour’s drive away, you can also discover the ancient fairytale woodlands of southern Germany’s Black Forest region and the vineyards and historic towns of Alsace in France. Just don’t forget your passport.
