How to find us
To Allschwil by car:
Approaching Basel on the Swiss motorway, stay in the middle lane from Pratteln onwards. Follow the signs for «Euro Airport» and then drive through two tunnels («Schwarzwaldtunnel» and «Horburgtunnel»). Cross the Rhine on the covered bridge and drive into another tunnel («St. Johanntunnel»).
In the St. Johanntunnel, take exit No. 2 marked «Basel Kannenfeldplatz/Allschwil». After the tunnel, continue straight on until you see the blue sign «Allschwil» (5th traffic light) and then turn right into «Baslerstrasse» and follow the tram lines as far as the terminus.
Immediately after the Restaurant Rössli turn right into the road marked «Neuwiller». Thiscurves sharply to the right after about 70 m. Continue to follow signs for «Neuwiller» as theroad leads straight on up the hill.
Once you reach the plateau, about 1.5 km outside the village, turn left into «Markstallstrasse». Signs marked with «Blindenführhundeschule» point to our school, which you will reach after about 400 m.
CAUTION: The centre of Allschwil village is closed on market days and you will need to follow the diversion signs marked «Neuwiller» that are set up on the outskirts of Allschwil.
*For our visitors from Germany:
After passing through the motorway customs, take the exit marked «Basel Kleinhüningen» and then follow the directions above.
By public transport and on foot
At Basel SBB railway station take tram No. 1, direction «Dreirosenbrücke». At the «Brausebad» stop, change into tram No. 6 direction «Allschwil» and continue to the terminus (about 30min.). Walk from the terminus via «Neuweilerstrasse» to the Hotel Schlüssel. From there, follow the School’s official signposts for pedestrians marked with «Blindenführhundeschule».
Should the shooting range be in use, follow the sign posted alternative route (about 20 min.).
