Binningen is a commune with over 15,000 residents just outside Basel, a place with an active village life and a history stretching back more than 1000 years. Communal services are rendered in a customer-friendly way and there is an active social network. Residents enjoy a low commune tax rate.

Good range of services

Binningen offers an excellent range of services for different segments of the population. The extensive range of school and care services together with the communal leisure and sports facilities contribute greatly to Binningen’s popularity amongst families with children.

Attractive location

The commune benefits from an attractive location: for example, its proximity to Basel city centre and its amenities. The green zones, the Bruderholz fields and the Allschwil Forest with the Herzogenmatt Nature Reserve offer enticing walking opportunities.


Binningen is ideally connected to the public transport network. A great advantage is its proximity to the station and the Euro-Airport.
