Basel

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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Basel: Bern (UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern & Aare River), Bumblebee Hanggliding Interlaken (in Matten bei Interlaken) and Interlaken (Parasailing & Paragliding & Harderkulm). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basel Minster, make a trip to Rathaus, take some stellar pictures from Pfalz, and wander the streets of Altstadt-Spaziergange durch Basel.

For maps, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Basel travel route planner.
