REAL ESTATE IN SWITZERLAND/BASEL
Basel is the second largest labour market and one of the most dynamic economic regions in Switzerland. Basel is a key location for the chemical, pharmaceutical and biological industries. Companies such as Novartis, Roche, Lonza, BASF, Actelion and Syngenta have their headquarters or other important group functions located here. The financial services, logistics and trade sectors also rank amongst the most established in the region. Due to Basel’s strong economic position, office properties located in the CBD of Basel are favoured by investors as well as life science parks and campuses in other central locations. Residential properties are still considered as a relative safe investment class and prices have experienced a slight upward trend due to excess demand and continuing low interest rates in Switzerland.
Basel lies in between the Swiss Jura mountains, Germanys black forest and the Vosges in French Alsace. Basel boasts the highest density of life science companies in the world, which generates a large share of added value in the area. Asset Managers and Insurances are also prominent in Basel. As a result of its geographical location and its top transport infrastructure, the region is a major transshipment centre. The Euro Airport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg, the Swiss Rhine harbour, the international train station and excellent motorway connections to all over Europe make Basel the logistics centre of Switzerland.
Basel is also a major cultural centre with over 40 museums and hosts important art fairs such as the world-known art Basel. The main convention centre is built by the star architects Herzog & DeMeuron who are Basel natives and shape architecture with their designs worldwide.
Additionally, Basel is home to the oldest university in Switzerland, yielded nine Nobel prize winners and enjoys a reputation for outstanding teaching and research.
