Coliving in Basel

Basel
A city full of art lovers is what Basel is known for and any coliving hub will enable you to make the most of this heart-warming place. As it is situated on the Rhine, in the northwest part of Switzerland where it borders both France and Germany, this means Basel has developed a unique and interesting identity all of its own.
Nightlife isn't big in Basel, but what it lacks in this area it makes up for in its trendy art and cultural scene, in particular Theatre. It is home to multiple art galleries, theatres, museums, and Opera houses. There should be no spare evenings if you're doing Basel right. Any digital nomads placing down roots here for a while will be treated to a feast of culture.
Talking of food, during your stay you can visit the Marktplatz to pick up your weekly fresh food shop, or simply taste a bit of the incredible local food. It's situated in the medieval old part of the city, which makes it great for city culture viewing. It is more expensive on average to stay in Basel, but in exchange for this higher living cost, you gain access to fast Internet, multiple places to work, good weather, and high quality of life.
Some essential sights to visit during your time here include the Basel Zoo, which is one of the oldest and largest Zoos in Switzerland. It's non-profit, and all proceeds go to helping conservation projects across the world. Or if you're a fan of a cuddle, then you should definitely check out the world's largest collection of stuffed teddy bears.
Trams cover the entirety of Basel, so travel is easy and also helpfully while Switzerland has four official languages, the most common language spoken in Basel is German (Baseldytsch). If you speak English or French though, you'll get by well enough. It's perfect for any type of traveler looking for a cultured coliving experience.
