How to get to the venue

The workshop will be held in the Fakultätenzimmer (1st floor) at the Kollegienhaus, the main building of the University of Basel.


By train:

The Kollegienhaus is conveniently reachable from the railway station “Bahnhof SBB” with bus # 30 (Direction: Badischer Bahnhof). This bus leaves every 7 minutes in front of the railway station (Cafe Bachmann) and takes 4 minutes to reach the stop “Spalentor”. Directions on how to reach the Kollegienhaus from the Spalentor bus stop can be found here. Price (take a short distance ticket): Fr 1.90, or Fr 1.40 with a half fare card. If you stay in a hotel in Basel, the confirmation of your reservation includes a 24h ticket - so you do not have to buy an extra bus or tram ticket.

Those who arrive from Badischer Bahnhof also have to take bus #30 (Direction: Bahnhof SBB) to stop "Spalentor" (details).


By car:

Public parking lots are not easily available in the vicinity of the Kollegienhaus. However, there is an underground parking facility “Steinen” within 10 minutes walking distance. From the A2 motorway (Bern, Zürich), take exit #10 “Basel Süd/City”, follow the sign “Universitätsspital/Spalentor”, turn left to follow the arrow “P Steinen/Heuwaage”. Map for the Steinen parking.
