Hotel Krafft

Yes, it’s in a prime location – directly on the Rhine River with awesome views. That’s Hotel Krafft, a fixture in Basel since the late nineteenth century. The hotel extends over five floors, with the promenade along the Rhine and the nearby Rheingasse providing a lively backdrop. It’s a place where guests always receive a warm and friendly welcome.

intersect, the whole world
looks like home for
