People who move to a new place must first reorient themselves, because nothing is the way it used to be. This begins with the most mundane, everyday considerations: where does the rubbish go? But soon somewhat more difficult questions emerge. Where do I have to register my car? Where will my child go to school? And what am I going to do in my free time when I hardly know anyone in my new home?
This brochure is meant to help you to settle down in your new place of residence. But we not only want you to know what forms you have to fill out; we want you to have a sense of well-being in Basel and soon no longer feel like a newcomer, but rather as a part of this city canton.
