    You need to plan min. 2 days to really enjoy. The best is to be invited by a bramd ;) evening events are so cool

    Yep, just buy the ticket and that's it. But exactly as friendharry says: plan at least 2 days, one is too short to see it all, and Basel is great, lot's of restaurants, has it's own airport and a big trainstation.
    If you are going and know at which date book a hotel early as otherwise most rooms will be gone in downtown Basel city.
    But you can also book outside Basel and take the train, I did that this year and was just a 10 minute drive.
