If your trip to Dornach is all booked but your travel itinerary is a little on the empty side, we can give you a few hints and tips.
Give that rental car a break and use those legs. Not far from this neighborhood's center, Ermitage is worth a visit. Dom von Arlesheim and Dorneck Castle are two other close-by attractions that draw large numbers of travelers like yourself.
Make sure you swing by Arlesheim and Munchenstein during your stay here. Allow yourself plenty of time to explore — there's loads to keep you on the go. Travel 1 mile from Dornach and you'll find yourself in Arlesheim. Alternatively, Munchenstein is 3 miles away.
Here on a work trip? You'll be happy to know that Congress Center Basel has some excellent hotels, restaurants and cafés nearby. You'll find it 6 miles from Dornach.
Slide behind the wheel of an intermediate car and take in the gorgeous sights of Basel with your family or friends. These mid-size vehicles offer more space and a sizeable trunk that will fit all your necessities. They have fantastic gas mileage, so you can easily journey the 6 miles between Dornach and downtown Basel (and beyond!) without burning a hole in your pocket. But if you're in the mood to splash out on your vacation, why not opt for a premium vehicle? All those little extras, like fancy leather seats and a voice activation system, will ensure you have an outstanding driving experience.
For some people, owning a high-end vehicle is a little (or a lot!) out of reach. But renting your dream ride is far easier than you think! Picture yourself rolling into town in a fancy convertible, even if it's only for a short while. Or maybe all you're after is a trusty set of wheels to bring you from A to B. Flashy or affordable? Either way, one thing's for sure — there's a rental car to suit your style in Dornach.
Motoring in and around Dornach involves more than simply knowing how to turn the key in the ignition. Brush up on the road rules and journey around this lively city the safe way:
In Dornach, motorists stick to the right side. When exploring a new place, it's always a good idea to go for an automatic vehicle. That way, you can concentrate on the road and not stress about gear changes.
With Basel having a modest population of about 164,500, traffic isn't a massive issue in neighborhoods like Dornach. As with most destinations, the roads are busier as people go to and from work. Try to avoid those times for a smoother ride.
You shouldn't have any difficulties getting a parking spot in Dornach. With plenty of places to leave your car, discovering the best of this destination is easy and fun.
Like the rest of the city of Basel, the neighborhood of Dornach has speed limits that range from 50 km/h to 120 km/h. In residential zones, you generally won't be able to drive faster than 50 km/h.
Normally, one of two things will happen. Your chosen car rental company may bill the fined amount to your credit card. This is the more common practice. On the other hand, it may forward your contact details to the relevant local authority so the fine is sent directly to you.
Seat belts are mandatory in Basel. Having said that, the rule may vary for some vehicles, such as those operated by public transportation systems.
Provided you have hands-free or Bluetooth functions enabled, you are allowed to use your phone while cruising around Dornach. But ensure you keep concentrating on the road.
The legal BAC (blood alcohol content) limit when driving in Dornach is 0.05%. If a big night is on the cards, leave your rental wheels behind and organize some other way of getting home instead.
No, so don't risk a fine by doing it. In Dornach, red equals stop, with no exceptions. When nearing a set of traffic lights, always maintain a safe speed so you can easily stop when you need to.
