Basel’s New Official City Map

In 2021, the city of Basel issued its new city map, which was quickly sold out by July of the same year. The revised edition—the Basler Stadtplan 2022—is now available at the customer center of the Grundbuch- und Vermessungsamts (land register and surveying office) at Dufourstrasse 40, at the Basel tourist office in Barfüsserplatz, as well as in city bookstores. The aesthetically designed and coordinated covers (an offcut of the Baslerstab) form a collectible series and are primarily aimed at Basel residents and Basel lovers.

The 2022 edition of the city map with a scale of 1:12500 is characterized in particular by the complete revision of the representation of individual buildings in Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft. All buildings have been subjected to a new, more precise generalization and thus show an even more realistic picture of urban and rural development. The city map and all other maps and information have been updated for the new edition. This applies in particular to the public transport network map and the Basel Info city center zoom.

The new city map costs CHF 15, and as in the previous year, you also have the option of sending the city map as a gift with a specially designed greeting card (CHF 20, including card and postage). Simply visit their website, input your billing address (Rechnungsadresse) and the address of the recipient (Versandadresse), as well as your greeting. Further information on the city map and the link to order the city map as a gift can be found on their website at
