Store your luggage around Basel with Bounce 

Switzerland is one of the most fascinating countries to visit. It’s linguistically diverse, being a melting pot of French, German, and Italian cultural influences. As such, there is a surprising array of travel experiences you can have throughout the country. Each city has that idyllic Alpine charm, but there are plenty of distinctive characteristics that make each travel destination stand out. 

One of Switzerland’s largest and most historic cities is Basel. Situated on the Rhine, Basel combines efficient Swiss modernity with its medieval past. The historic Old Town is lined with Medieval buildings and cobbled streets. There’s also the picturesque riverfront that provides some of the most beautiful views of Basel’s cityscape. The river promenades are lined with shops, cafes, restaurants, and bars. 

Basel’s city center is packed with fun things to do, so you’ll want to plan your visit to fit it all in. If you’re trying to sightsee on travel days, you’ll want to find a place to leave the bags while you jet around Basel. The best Basel luggage storage service is Bounce, with plenty of convenient locations across the city. 

Here’s everything you need to know about what to do, where to shop, what to eat, and where to book luggage storage in Basel: 

Luggage storage in Basel

Many travelers arrive in Basel via train from other Swiss cities or neighboring countries. This will land you right in the city center, with all the best attractions and landmarks at your fingertips. The Basel SBB train station does have a luggage storage location with limited service, but it’s not open 24 hours per day, and it's more of a luggage locker than full service. If you need to store luggage for a full day of sightseeing, you might want to look into a service like Bounce. 

Bounce has convenient luggage storage facilities near all the best travel hotspots, and our intuitive mobile app makes it easy to find a location and book on the go. These facilities are manned by a friendly local partner within the Bounce network, and these interactions are always smooth and pleasant. There’s also 24/7 customer support from a dedicated team, along with a BounceShield guarantee that ensures your bags are stored safely.

Basel city guide 

Top things to do in Basel

Whether it’s getting out to the Swiss Alps for winter sports or simply visiting the many mountain villages, many travelers use Basel as a base for exploring the mountainous region. But there’s plenty to do while in the city. There’s an amazing museum scene, with world-class institutions like the Fondation Beyeler and Kunstmuseum Basel.

There’s also delectable Swiss cuisine, whether it’s a Michelin-starred fine dining establishment or a street food vendor in Old Town. Each of the historic streets is lined with boutiques, gift shops, jewelers, and other stores that make souvenir shopping a breeze. 

Museums in Basel

Kunstmuseum Basel

The iconic Kunstmuseum Basel is Switzerland's oldest public art collection, dating back to 1661. Its highly diverse collection of art and historical artifacts spans centuries of history, from the Middle Ages to contemporary works. The eclecticism is absolutely on display when you’re going from a modern abstract painting to centuries-old masterpieces from legendary artists. The Renaissance and Impressionist movements are particularly well represented here. Guided tours are highly recommended for the full experience. 

Kunstmuseum Bag Policy

For safety reasons, the Kunstmuseum has instituted a bag policy prohibiting all items larger than 8” x 12” (20 x 30 cm) inside the museum. This size limit clearly prohibits luggage of any sort and many larger items. Luckily, Bounce’s Basel luggage storage spots are conveniently located nearby.

Fondation Beyeler

With works from Picasso, Rothko, Monet, and Warhol throughout its storied halls, it’s safe to say that Fondation Beyeler is a worthwhile stop for art enthusiasts when visiting Basel. In fact, this museum’s collection makes it a destination for art historians and students from around the globe. This architecturally stunning world-class museum was designed by renowned architect Renzo Piano and is set in a leafy park on the outskirts of town in Riehen. It’s certainly worth strolling the grounds before or after admiring its amazing collections. 

Fondation Beyeler Bag Policy 

The maximum bag size allowed in the museum is 8” x 12” (20 x 30 cm). There are free lockers onsite, but these are incredibly small and won't fit luggage or most larger items. 

Town Hall (Rathaus)

Basel's Town Hall, situated right in the city center in the Marktplatz, is one of the most iconic landmarks in Switzerland, and it’s a symbol of the city’s rich history. With its distinctive red brick and richly adorned facade, the Rathaus is an architectural masterpiece of the late Gothic style with colorful frescoes that depict scenes from the city's history. The interior’s lavishly decorated halls are currently the seat of the local government, but they also operate as a museum showcasing the rich history of the city. 

Swiss museums tend to be located in historic buildings, meaning there might not be storage lockers onsite or a left luggage service available. Fortunately, Bounce’s locations are located near travel destinations and attractions, so storing luggage is as easy as it gets.

Shopping in Basel

Marktplatz and Freie Strasse

Marktplatz is Basel’s primary historic town square (or market square), where you’ll find stalls selling fresh produce, flowers, and artisanal goods. Adjacent to the square is the primary shopping street in Old Town, Freie Strasse. It’s where you’ll find luxury boutiques, department stores, and international designer brands. You can certainly spend a lot of money on Freie Strasse…

Clara Shopping

This modern shopping complex on the north bank of the Rhine houses dozens of high-street fashion retailers and international brands. It's conveniently located in the Kleinbasel district, where there are plenty of boutique-lined streets like Rebhasse and Utengasse that are great for window shopping. 

St. Johann District

For trendy travelers, head across the Rhine for quirky vintage stores, art galleries, record shops, and local boutiques from Basel designers. Its hipster vibe is unparalleled in Basel.

These shopping destinations are more based around streets and town squares rather than malls, so you won’t have amenities like luggage lockers to rely on when you’re on a shopping spree. The best luggage storage services tend to place their locations near these retail districts so that shoppers can drop the bags off on their way around town. Bounce tends to have more conveniently located facilities than other luggage storage services, so you know who you can rely on.

Restaurants in Basel

Cheval Blanc by Peter Knogl

If you’re fortunate enough to afford a room at the Hotel Les Trois Roi, then good for you. If the fanciest grand hotel in Hasel is out of your price range, you can still dine at its sleek bistro. Widely regarded as one of Switzerland’s best restaurants, Cheval Blanc brings global reference points to fine-dining classics, and these chefs have earned three Michelin stars for their inventive approach and impeccable quality. 

Confiserie Schiesser

There’s something about an Alpine city that makes pastries and desserts more appealing. This adorable bakery and café sits across the square from Town Hall (the Rathaus), which might explain why the tourists line up to grab a delectable dessert like their chocolate truffles. If you want a sit-down situation in the carved-wood second-floor dining room, they serve quiche, salads, sandwiches, and crepes which make for the perfect lunch on a day of sightseeing. 

Roots

Overlooking the Rhine, this sleek contemporary restaurant is one of the best fine dining establishments in Basel. Modern chef-driven dishes are prepared with seasonal ingredients. There’s a slight nod to traditional European fare, but you’ll find surprising flavors and textures inspired by any and every type of cuisine. Of any fancy restaurants in Basel, this is probably the best option for vegetarians. If you’re looking for the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion, this is your spot. Not only is the elegant dining room ideal for romantic evenings, but the chef’s menu with wine pairing (five, seven, or epic nine-course options are available) makes for a splashy evening.  Depending on the weather, you’ll want to reserve a table well ahead of time on the restaurant’s terrace. The views of the city and scenery are stunning, especially around sunset. 

Most of the best restaurants in Basel tend to be upscale fine dining establishments with elegant dining rooms and refined atmospheres. Lugging your heavy suitcases to your table simply won’t do. That’s why a luggage storage service like Bounce, with facilities near the best dining and nightlife hotspots, is so useful. Simply find the storage spot nearest to the restaurant, book online, and drop the bags off on your way.

Conclusion 

The best luggage storage Basel has to offer is available through Bounce, but that’s not the only Swiss city where you can securely store your luggage. With convenient luggage storage facilities in nearby cities like Zurich, Geneva, and Bern, Bounce should be your go-to when you need somewhere to keep the bags while sightseeing on travel days.
