Situated where the Swiss, German, and French borders meet, Basel is considered the hub of Dreilandereck, this "three countries corner." Its location makes Basel a center of culture and history, brimming with important theaters and museums.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Basel Minster and St Gallus Catholic Church. You'll explore and learn at Schachmuseum and Museum Aargau - Wildegg Castle. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Basel: Turm in Regensberg (in Regensberg), Muri Abbey (in Muri) and Schloss Ebenrain (in Sissach). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Dom von Arlesheim, pause for some serene contemplation at Offene Kirche Elisabethen, stop by Jakob's Basler Leckerly, and steep yourself in history at Wehrkirche St. Arbogast.

For ratings, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Basel trip builder website .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airports are Zürich Airport, Basel Mulhouse Freiburg and Bern Belp Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
