4-star Hotel in Switzerland

The Passage in Basel city center, near the train station

Take a brand-new passage in downtown Basel, a place that creates a transition between the old town and the new city, a place of elegant refuge. Close to the SBB train station, opening in the first quarter of 2014, is a four-star hotel called The Passage. Set upon the city’s ancient fortifications, it holds a one-of-a-kind position in Basel. And you can be one of the first to discover it! 

The hotel has a convenient and central location. The Steinen parking lot (over 500 spaces) and many public transportation options make your stay even easier. Slip out for some afternoon shopping on the Freie Strasse, visit the Kunstmuseum, relax on the banks of the Rhine, or head for the Messe Basel for a business-like setting.

The Passage is both urban and relaxed, a modern, elegant facility that is steeped in charm. A trendy new address in Basel that is already the place to be and has a bright future ahead!

Sightseeing and leisure

The Passage Hotel is in downtown Basel, a few steps from the SBB train station. The bustling streets of the city center, the Freie Strasse and its luxury shops are just a few minutes on foot from the hotel. There is also a wide range of ground transportation available to let you easily explore the entire city.

Stroll through the historic center of Basel or along the Rhine River. The Kunstmuseum is also quite near the hotel, housing a large collection that covers the history of art from the 15th through the 20th centuries.

Basel is renowned for its numerous museums and galleries. Noteworthy sites include the Fondation Beyeler, with superb architecture, major works, and lush grounds. In June, the city also hosts the largest contemporary art fair in the world: Art Basel. This event is held at the Messe, a massive convention center set right in downtown, just a few minutes from The Passage.
