Passenger Terminal Basel


Space limitations at the waterfront have supported the idea to combine port activities with (semi-)public spaces. The Port of Switzerland administration has set the focus on the growing market of passenger shipping, preferably in form of river cruises. In order to accelerate the further development of this market segment in Basel, the port has taken several actions in order to ensure a close participation of the major stakeholders as well as the broad public. Therefore, in total eight workshops different parties were held. The outcome, the report “Procedure and standards for assessing passenger ship terminals”, can be considered as general guideline for the assessment of infrastructure investments in passenger ship terminals for international passenger shipping on inland waterways.
