Hi! I'm Nate; I hope to come to Basel in the fall to study at the Schola Cantorum (part of the Musik-Akademie der Stadt Basel). I am beginning to learn German, and will take an intensive language course before I arrive, so I'll be able to at least speak standard German (if not Baseldytsch) a bit.
Do you have suggestions for an American who is coming to Basel? What is the best way to find an apartment?
I'm bringing my bicycle to commute to school; is there anything I should know about biking in Basel?
