Basel

— 8 nights
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.
Head to UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern and Central Railroad Stationfor plenty of shopping. Do some cultural sightseeing at Basel Minster and The Rosengart Collection. Get out of town with these interesting Basel side-trips: Aarburg Castle (in Aarburg), Lucerne (Chapel Bridge, Lion Monument, &more) and Bern (Zentrum Paul Klee (Paul Klee Center), Church of the Holy Ghost, &more). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Seebad Eich, wander the streets of Basel's Old Town, explore the world behind art at Fondation Beyeler, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Paul's Church.
