The Alte Kraftwerk in Basel

If you would like to hold your private or business event in Basel against an authentic backdrop with history, the Old Power Station is the perfect choice. In an easily accessible location not far from the St. Jakob Park, the former operating hall for generators and transformer stations, built in 1895, welcomes you for unusual events.

Spend a birthday on site, give your wedding an unforgettable setting or lend an extraordinary spirit to business events ranging from meetings, seminars and conferences, roadshows and workshops to presentations, corporate events and staff functions.

The venue offer

The main hall for up to 700 people forms the heart of the ground floor, which covers a total of around 1,500 m². In addition to the large foyer on 300 m², in which you can welcome your guests, the 250 m² Faraday's cage is particularly remarkable. It dates from times long past, but has been preserved to this day, just like a 40-ton crane runway.

The 750 m² upper floor has two further, also light-flooded event rooms. The 450 m² of Windererei 1 is suitable for groups of up to 270 people, while the 300 m² Windererei can accommodate 2 120 - 150 guests. A wonderfully landscaped garden rounds off the offer as an open air alternative.

The service

In the Alte Kraftwerk you will receive an all-round package from one source from the experienced team. This includes the state-of-the-art technical equipment of the rooms, which can be extended if necessary, and modular furniture. An event manager acts as your personal contact person, and briefed event staff are added during the implementation. The in-house kitchen also provides delicious catering with either a local or international touch.
