Baselworld parking, any tips?

Can anyone give me a tip on Baselworld parking? Last year was a nightmare, I don't want to do that again. No public transport please, or very minimal.

Re: Baselworld parking, any tips?

Well, the tip no 1 is that this is prime time for parking tickets, so you will see many more police officers than normal walking around. Funnily enough, one can see expensive cars parked wrongly, but I guess if someone is coming to buy 20 000 CHF worth watch, 40f parking fee is irrelevant.

You could park in Riehen (for free), and take tram No 6 that gets you exactly in front of Messe. I guess this is the easiest.

Re: Baselworld parking, any tips?

So i should just park in Riehen near the number 6 tram and leave my car on the street there? Is it a blue zone or? Thank you

Even in Riehen, you might need to be lucky to find a white zone space.

The official answer is to park at the airport. There are designated parting areas for the Messe and regular shuttle buses from the car park to the side of the halls and back.

Re: Baselworld parking, any tips?

On a slightly related note, don't even think of trying to use catch-a-car during any fair or event. It's bad enough trying to find a parking space on an ordinary evening.

It's a great service, but I spent 30 minutes finding a parking space last week, and ended up parking a team ride away from where I needed to be.

Re: Baselworld parking, any tips?

Riehen has become a blue-zone-only area.

You can however buy a visitor's parking ticket for chf 6 for half a day or chf 10 for a full day. It's valid for blue zones all over Basel and is available online and at public transport ticket machines.
