Real Estate in Basel, Switzerland
Basel is the second largest 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 as well as life science parks and campuses in other central locations are sought-after by investors. Residential properties are still considered a safe investment class and prices have experienced an upward trend due to excess demand and continuing low interest rates in Switzerland.

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.
