Arrival by car

Basel lies at the crossroads of the European motorway network. Easily accessible by car, with parking facilities at many hotels. A valid sticker is needed to make use of the Swiss motorway network.


If you are using the Swiss motorway network, you will require a vignette, which is available to buy at all customs offices, post offices, petrol stations, garages, department of transportation offices and Basel Tourismus offices for CHF 40. Once you have arrived in the city there are more than 4,000 parking spaces for you to use in Basel's car parks, whether in the city centre or at the St. Jakob-Park stadium. You can purchase a day ticket at BVB ticket vending machines, allowing you to park in spaces outlined in blue. Furthermore, most hotels also have good parking facilities.
