Birsfelden-Basel community

We are looking at renting an apartment in Birsfelden - Basel's suberb. Could anyone comment on what this commune is and whether there is anything special about it worth knowing before moving in?

Thanks in advance

Re: Birsfelden-Basel community

I have just been staying here for a few weeks so this is not long-term experience. All in all I think it's quite a catch - it gets you the benefit of lower Basel land taxes and medical aid while still being very close to Basel city. There are buses every 15 minutes (a little less frequent than in the city) and from where I am it is a 5 minute walk to the tram line 3 that comes every 8 minutes.
Also nice and close to the Rhine and Birsfelden island for jogs, picnics and sunsets.
Generally the area is very quiet with the only regular 'noise' coming from the church bells - I wouldn't live right next door - but that goes for Switzerland as a whole.
