KONUS-Gästekarte in Lörrach

I am not sure whether I am becoming confused with the German language, but I have read German-language reports stating that the town of Lörrach is participating in the KONUS scheme from the beginning of 2013 and other reports suggesting that Lörrach has now withdrawn from the scheme with effect of 1 April 2013.

As I piece together a trip to the Black Forest, I had hoped to spend a few nights in Lörrach using the town as a cheaper alternative base from which to explore the Swiss city of Basel as well as the border region of Germany/Switzerland and Germany/France.

Have I understood the German reports correctly? If so, are there any plans to reinstate Lörrach into the KONUS scheme?

...furthermore, if Lörrach is not to continue in the KONUS scheme, what is the next best alternative which does participate in it with easy access to Basel?

Lörrach has indeed withdrawn from Konus. In the proximity of Basel just "Zell im Wiesental" and "Bad Säckingen" are participating places. Both places are offering frequent train services to Basel. The trains from Zell are running via Basel Bad. Bf to Basel SBB station. The trains from Bad Säckingen have their final destination in Basel Bad. Bf. station.

Compared to Zell, Bad Säckingen is by far the more attractive place.

Thank you so much.

Bad Säckingen looks beautiful. I have made some enquiries with hotels in the town and await their responses.
