  • Mobility ticket & city tax

    City tax & BaselCard

    Why is the city tax so important?

    Basel-Stadt charges its guests a city tax (visitors' tax). These revenues flow into the creation and mainte-nance of tourism infrastructure. With the BaselCard which is also funded by the city tax, guests have free access to public transport in Basel and the region and, since 2018, also discounted admission to attractive cultural and leisure activities as well as to the free visitor’s-WIFI.
