ABOUT

GETTING THERE

If you would like to stay in Basel before or after the Grand Gravel Grind, we recommend the following. HOTEL KRAFT, a wonderful hotel about 5 minutes walk from us. The hotel is located directly on the Rhine. HOTEL NOMAD, one of the newest hotels in Basel, design lovers will find their pleasure. The hotel is about 10-15 minutes away from us. HOTEL BALADE, nice and uncomplicated, a 1-minute walk from OBST&GEMÜSE near the Rhine.
 YOUTH HOSTEL, the newly renovated youth hostel is located in the beautiful St. Albanthal and has single, double, but also more favorable multi-bed rooms. Dei Youth Hostel is located near the Rhine.

Or check out AirBnB for shared or private rooms.
 

The ride will be over mixed-terrain, which means a mix of asphalt roads, easy gravel, bad gravel, mud, and some hike-a-bike. It's a social ride, which means we'll stick around in a group. 

 

We recommend riding a cx- or gravel bike or an MTB. Or at least something with 30mm+ tires. There will be a limited amount of OPEN bikes available to ride for those without such a bike.

 

Please get in touch if you have any questions.

BY BIKE

To be honest we would love it, if you travel by bike. We are sure that you are familiar with Strava or Komoot and can easily plan your route.

 

BY TRAIN

You can arrive in Basel at the Swiss, French or German railway station. We are reachable from all train stations in about 10 - 15 minutes by bike or tram number 8. For train connections, check out the SBB site.

 

BY CAR

Take the National Road direction Freiburg (GER) or Mullhouse (FRA). We are 5 minutes away from both borders.
 

BY PLANE
Basel Airport is approximately 15 minutes away and offers international flights. If you have no connection to Basel, you can also land at Zurich Airport and take the train to Basel (about 1 hour).
