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.
Get out of town with these interesting Basel side-trips: Interlaken (Heidi's Photo Chalet, Parasailing & Paragliding, & more), Protestant City Church Thun (in Thun) and Bern (Aare River, Vennerbrunnen, & more). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Basel Minster, make a trip to Rathaus, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Brienz, and examine the collection at Schachmuseum.

To see reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Basel travel itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Albania, the closest major airports are Z├╝rich Airport, Basel Mulhouse Freiburg and Bern Belp Airport. In December in Basel, expect temperatures between 7°C during the day and 0°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
