Hello! We are moving to Basel.
Hello Everyone,

My wife & I are in the process of moving our family to Basel from the US. We are looking for places to rent for a few years and need some advice about how to get started. I've been told that the Binningen and Bottmingen areas are great but I have no idea how to contact housing agencies and set up tours. We will both be in Basel in late Dec. or early Jan. to visit the International school (we have a 3 and 5 year old) and look for places to live.

So far I have looked at a couple of websites but haven't figured out how to find properties that will meet our requirements. What am I missing here? I want 4 bedrooms, 175 square meters or larger in a clean, safe area. Any ideas?

In short I'd like to be able to set up some guided tours if homes in and around the city. I'd really appreciate any local knowledg or advice about housing, the International school, working in Basel, etc...

Thanks so much. We are really excited about the moving to Switzerland!

Re: Hello! We are moving to Basel.
Hello and welcome to the Forum :) I can't help you re. Basel but it sounds like you may benefit from a location agent. There's lots of info on here - search around the various threads on Basel and accomodation - but in terms of getting an idea of a place, perhaps a few hours with an agency may be useful? Beware, however, as they aren't cheap...

Re: Hello! We are moving to Basel.
Hi there,
We recently relocated to Basel and are renting a furnished apartment from the company, FAB Lehmann

They have lots of beautiful properties and the link above shows a 4 1/2 room property that is 20 mins away from the International School. There is a pdf file that you can access on the site that will show you other properties and the times they are available.

I can highly recommend them - the landlady/owner (Esther Lehmann) is a super friendly and wonderful woman and has made our relocation so comfortable and easy! We live in her property in Basel Stadt and really it is fantastic! :D
