Unfortunately Basel is no longer as safe as it used to be. During daylight hours the city feels safe and is a very pleasant place to be, with lots of cafes, shops and bars. We have many tourists. However at night there are places to avoid. Especially Kleinbasel on the northern side of the Rhine, which is a hotbed of drug dealers and other criminality. I would advise people to avoid places like Claraplatz, Kaserne, Unterer Rheinweg and Dreirosen at night.

Basel has a significant amount of violent crime. The local police has been accused of not being able to address the problem. Basel is known to be a center of drug trade. And recent crime includes the killing of a taxi driver - the stabbing of a man in front of SBB and the sexual assault of a lady in the bike parking area underneath Railway station SBB in broad daylight ….

Whenever an assault or robbery happens you can almost bet in happened in "Basel-Stadt". Its the most criminal Part of Switzerland. By coincidence its also one of the most culturally enriched parts of Switzerland. Would avoid.
