How do I find launchlabs?
You will find our premises in the lively Gundeldinger Feld, a listed building in a former industrial factory close to the main station Basel SBB. Detailed information, our address and directions with public transport or by car can be found here.
Is there any parking near launchlabs that I can use?
There are several parking spaces in the blue zone around the area. Alternatively, we recommend the Gundeli Park car park, which is only a 5-minute walk away. The Gundeldinger Feld as well as the access directly in front of our event hall is car-free and only accessible for deliveries.
How can I rent a room and how much does it cost?
What infrastructure is available at launchlabs?
The event hall, as well as the other rooms, offer basic workshop equipment and event furniture, as well as appropriate technology. Details can be found in the respective room description or our factsheet. We are happy to show you how the technology systems work during a walk-through. We can also provide technical support during events at extra cost.
How do I access the rooms? Do I have to observe certain opening times?
With your booking we ensure you easy access to the premises. During regular office hours someone from the team is on site. At off-peak times and weekends, access is arranged by prior agreement.

The construction and dismantling of furniture can be done by yourself. If you wish us to take care of the assembly and dismantling for you, the cost will be reflective of time required.
The construction should preferably be made on the day of the event. Deliveries and collections the day before or after are only possible if there are no other bookings, or if existing bookings will not be disturbed.
