Facilities at Messe Basel

The City Lounge with its 30-metre cone of light constitutes the central architectural feature of Messe Basel. This covered-over public space, which is resemblant of a station concourse or a market hall, not only marks the entrance to the exhibition halls and our Event Hall but also constitutes the focus of public life and adds bustle to Exhibition Square. The Congress Center Basel is right next to the City Lounge and has via a walkway direct access to the new building designed by Herzog & de Meuron.
