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.
Basel Paper Mill Museum and Bernisches Historisches Museum - Einstein Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Shop till you drop at UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern and Thun-Panorama. Change things up with these side-trips from Basel: Thun (Obere Hauptgasse, Thunersee, & more), Bern (Aare River, Zentrum Paul Klee (Paul Klee Center), & more) and Oberhofen am Thunersee (Oberhofen Castle & Oberhofen Castle). The adventure continues: get to know the resident critters at Zoo Basel, take a stroll through Altstadt-Spaziergange durch Basel, see the interesting displays at Jean Tinguely Museum, and admire the masterpieces at Fondation Beyeler.
