We are excited to share our part of the world with you! 

As a boarding school, it’s important for families to be able to come visit, get a better understanding of who we are, and see if BFA is the right choice for their children. On most Fridays during the school year we have opportunities for prospective families to visit, attend chapel, meet with our staff, and prospective students can attend a couple classes with a BFA student. If you’re interested in scheduling a tour, please contact us and we would be happy to provide more information.

If you are coming from out of the country, the two closest airports are Basel (BSL) and Zürich (ZRH). Given our rural location, we recommend renting a car upon arrival so you can enjoy everything this region has to offer – there is some public transportation but service is very limited.

There are a number of housing options in Kandern and the surrounding villages. Our recommendation is to search sites like Airbnb, the Kandern Lodging Listings or any of the common online travel sites. Many accommodations locally are Guesthouses/B&Bs such as the Zur Schnecke, while larger, more modern hotels can be found 20-25 minutes away in nearby Basel or Lörrach.
