The Heart of Basel. For people interested in encounters, enjoyment, architecture, art and culture, Volkshaus Basel is the heart of Basel. Hospitality, cosmopolitanism, tradition and innovation shape our values. Situated in the middle of urban and lively Kleinbasel district and brimming with vibrant content, Volkshaus Basel has made a name for itself as an institution for gastronomy, hotel and events since 1925 - culinary delights, lasting relaxation, breathtaking architecture, inspiring art and encounters that will be remembered. Employees with heart and soul shape the personal service culture throughout the house and try to make their guests feel the maxim of their motivation every day: Giving joy, experiencing joy.
“Boutique at its best – a category of its own” The Volkshaus Basel Boutique-Hotel is designed for the individuality and needs of its guests. We make amazing things possible and create an urban place of relaxation and modern hospitality in the middle of Basel’s liveliest district. Architectural generosity and careful treatment of historical substance characterise the floor plans of our 45 rooms, which combine luxury and reduced simplicity to create a hotel product that is unique in Switzerland. Developed by the most renowned architects of our time and equipped with a contemporary art concept, the Volkshaus creates its own quality level.
The Bar at Volkshaus Basel is the lively link between the local neighbourhood and our house. It is a hotel lobby, coffee house, bistro and local bar in one: a meeting place where our guests can meet in a good atmosphere and enjoy signature dishes and classic cocktails – from early in the morning until late in the evening.
The Brasserie in the Volkshaus Basel forms the culinary heart of the house, whose range of products combines tradition and modernity. Our guests are enriched by an experience that encompasses all facets of our hospitality: Culinary delights, atmosphere, attention and cordiality. The interior, designed by the renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron, conveys a metropolitan atmosphere and at the same time does not lack cosiness. Under a sea of mouth-blown lights, with a view of the treecovered inner courtyard and the works of important contemporary artists, one can forget everyday life and experience beautiful moments.
