Overview
More
The Congress Center Basel is Switzerland's largest conference centre, located directly alongside Messe Basel. The state-of-the-art infrastructure at Messe Basel plays a decisive role in the Congress Center's strong international position. Both the eleven modular rooms on the ground floor and the link to the exhibition complex by Herzog & de Meuron are impressive Features.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your recent visit with us. The building you describe was designed by Basel architects Herzog & de Meuron. It is linked directly, via a walkway, to the Congress Center Basel.

Many thanks for your valuable comment. However, decoration is usually done by the organizer according his ideas. The light in our breakout rooms is dimmable and capable of being controlled separately in the individual sections. Apparently, in your case, it seemed to be dimmed too...More

Thanks you for your kind remarks! The Congress Center Basel is indeed located in the heart of the city and just a short walk away from a large number of hotels.

Although not the biggest Messer in Germany, it is still pretty big. Sometimes it does feel as if you are traveling through time with the different architecture of the halls that have been added on, but a great venue

Many thanks for your great comment! Indeed, Basel is the biggest and oldest exhibition and congress venue in Switzerland and one of the key locations in Europe.

Just like many other buildings, the Messeplatz has unique architectural design. Its just few minutes away from the Rhine via transit.
