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.
Get out of town with these interesting Basel side-trips: Interlaken (Speed Boats Tours, Parasailing & Paragliding, & more), Mt Pilatus (in Lucerne) and Bumblebee Hanggliding Interlaken (in Matten bei Interlaken). Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Basel Minster, wander the streets of Basel's Old Town, stop by Jakob's Basler Leckerly, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Zoo Basel.

To see ratings, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Basel road trip planning website .
