Basel Travel Information

Switzerland’s second biggest city is located in the north of the country, close to the border with France. Sitting on the River Rhine, at the place where the river first becomes navigable, Basel is an old town, surrounded by lush farmland and pretty meadows. In the old part of Basel, you’ll find the area has been pedestrianised, and is a bustling place full of charming shops and fine medieval architecture. Basel is a lovely place for a holiday or short break, with its stylish restaurants and interesting museums providing plenty for the visitor to do.
