Local Guide

Basel promises culture unlimited : the city sparkles with an incomparable programme of arts and leisure activities. Whether discovering one of the over 40 museums or taking a boat ride back to the Roman age, Basel offers unforgettable stays. The city lies in the heart of Europe, on both banks of the Rhine. It is the centre of the idyllic border triangle of France, Germany and Switzerland – lying between the Swiss Jura, Germany’s Black Forest and the Vosges in Alsace. If you like to explore a city with shopping bags in hand, Basel is the place for you: it’s easy to combine shopping with sightseeing. And there is plenty to keep you occupied: luxury brands like Hermes, Louis Vuitton or Rolex; shoes, fashion, books, gourmet, small designer shops and specialty shops.
