Basel is a beautiful city in Switzerland, right along the Rhine River. It is the third largest town in the country, and although it may be lesser known than its sister cities of Zurich and Geneva (Switzerland), it has a unique personality that makes it stand on its own. Add to that the fact that in contrast to the snow-capped Alps that so many picture when they imagine Switzerland, Basel has a Mediterranean climate and an average of 300 days of sunshine a year. Bordering France and Germany, it is actually possible to be in three countries at once with a visit to the Border Triangle in Basel. All of this makes a visit to town well worth the flight.
Basel is known for its art and architecture that can be found throughout the city. Old Town Basel is a must see spot when visiting. 15th century architecture can be seen easily by foot so that visitors can truly experience Basel as it once was. That architectural beauty and history can specifically be found during a visit to the Basel Minster, a medieval church built in 1356. To top off a day of exploring, find out why Basel is considered the center of culture in Switzerland by taking in the art in one of the city’s 40 museums, including Kunstmuseum Basel.
