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.
Zoo Basel and Basel Minster will appeal to museum buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Basel: Oberhofen am Thunersee (Oberhofen Castle & Oberhofen Castle), Cathedrale St-Nicolas (in Fribourg) and Bern (Museum fur Kommunikation, Federal Building (Bundeshaus), & more). Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at Jean Tinguely Museum, take an in-depth tour of Regionalmuseum Langnau, see the interesting displays at HoosesaggMuseeum, and make a trip to Rathaus.
