Re: Best place to live for a family in Basel?

My guess is that you may be about to start work at the ISB (there are very few places in both Reinach and Aesch where you could be working!). If that is the case then anywhere along the tram 11 would be suitable for you. If you are intending to drive then there are many options, but the Reinach side of Basel would be easiest. It rather depends how much time you want to spend in the car each day. There are many school families in Reinach, particularly around the Reinacherhof tram stop. You may want to live amongst the school community, or a little apart from it, depending on how much privacy you are hoping for. Your budget of 2,000 is optimistic for a house - nearer to 3,000 is more likely and it will still be quite small, but the further you are away from public transport the more you get for your money (generally). If you would like to e-mail me privately for more information I might be able to help. Or you may already be here and organised, in which case, welcome to Basel!
