St. Jakob-Park, located about two miles south-east of Basel city centre, is the home stadium of top-flight football team FC Basel. It’s the biggest football venue in all of Switzerland with a capacity of 37,500 – or 60,000 when it’s hosting a concert. During your stay in Basel, you may hear residents and fans refer to the stadium as ‘Joggeli’, a nickname that’s the equivalent of Jake in the local dialect.
St. Jakob-Park is one of three major venues on a huge sports, concert and exhibition complex close to Basel – St. Jakobshalle is the indoor venue and St. Jakob Arena is the ice-hockey stadium – so it’s a popular area for visitors to stay. If you get in early, you should find a good choice of budget hotels, B&Bs and cheaper chain hotels near St. Jakob-Park. Basel SBB railway station is only a ten to 20-minute ride away by bus or tram, where you’ll find a variety of apartments, hostels and hotels. Or if you choose to stay in Basel city centre, you’ll be able to catch the no. 14 tram or bus 37 directly to St. Jakob-Park, which takes about 15 minutes. Handily, extra public transport services are usually laid on around match times.
As well as hosting all of FC Basel’s home games in the Swiss Super League, St. Jakob-Park has also seen plenty of high-profile international games over the years. When Switzerland and Austria hosted Euro 2008, St. Jakob-Park was the stage for six games including the semi-final between Germany and Turkey. In the 2011-12 season of the UEFA Champions League, FC Basel beat Manchester United at home to progress to the knockout stage and in the 2013-14 season, FC Basel won at St. Jakob-Park against Chelsea.
Even if you’re not visiting Basel for the football, St. Jakob-Park is worth a look as it was designed by world-renowned Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron – who are also responsible for the Tate Modern in London, Olympic Stadium in Beijing and Allianz Arena in Munich.
