Basel’s central location on the Rhine has made it a major trading hub throughout the city’s history. Basel’s proximity to both France and Germany has contributed to the city’s growth as a hub for Swiss culture; the city is home to numerous museums, galleries, and internationally acclaimed festivals. Basel is a city in Switzerland that is often neglected by tourists, despite its lively atmosphere, big and well-preserved old town, and prominent structures.
With one of Switzerland’s finest Old Towns, a plethora of museums, galleries, and theaters, a plethora of Rhine-centered activities, and easy proximity to both Germany and France, Basel is a fantastic travel destination.
As a city, Basel is a paradise for foodies, with restaurants serving everything from Swiss-German and Swiss-French classics to Japanese, South American, and Indian fare.
There’s something for everyone at the city’s little more than 500 eateries, and the food truck and market scene is thriving. Basel is located only minutes from the French border, but the city’s traditional cuisine has a strong Swiss-German flavor.
