A lovely village in a good location very close to Basel. Excellent tram service and very easy to use. Hotel Schluessel good to eat in and several other resturants around. Nice walks and handy for the superb Basel Zoo.
There's not a great deal to do in Binningen, it should be used as a staging post and/or a place to base yourself for travelling into Basel and/or to other locations around Switzerland. We had our car, so no problems with getting around the country via the motorways. Needless to say, Swiss trains do the job just as well (if not better) and no need to find parking when arriving at other locations.
Binningen is only a 15 minute walk from Basel but the Swiss provide tourists with free local travel. The cost of living is higher than the UK but the standards are much better. Great people and no litter on the streets.
Good place to say if you want to leave the car safely and travel around by tram, which is free with the hotel pass. Ten mins into Basel centre, which feels very safe. The hotel has a restaurant next door which we did not use as we ate in the town.
