Basel is conference city with everything in easy reach. Basel lies on both banks of the Rhine and is the centre of the idyllic border triangle of France, Germany and Switzerland – lying between the Swiss Jura, Germany’s Black Forest and the Vosges in Alsace. With 190.000 inhabitants the city has a very manageable size. But concealed behind this is not only the cultural capital of Switzerland, but also Europe’s prime life sciences location. The heart of the city beats in Basel’s well-preserved, romantic Old Town.  Its narrow streets and hidden squares with more than 300 fountains are just as charming as its many centuries-old buildings. Novartis Campus or the Roche Towers are an exciting contrast representing the modern face of Basel.

From a remote business hotel to the congress centre in the heart of the vibrant city: Bern and the Bernese Oberland offer their visitors a wide variety of destinations for business events. And once the professional agenda is finished, culinary and entertaining locations are waiting to be explored.  The region of Bern scores not only with its easy access thanks to excellent public transport connections and its central location in Switzerland, but everything is within a short distance.  That makes it possible to combine congresses in the city with social programmes in nature. "Everything within walking distance" is also a given in the various destinations: whether in Bern, Interlaken, Biel or mountain destinations such as Grindelwald, the railway station, congress centre and hotels are all easily reacheable on foot.
