The culture city at the rhine

Welcome to Basel

It is not easy to describe Basel in a few words. Descriptions for example such as “cultural city of Switzerland” or “university town” are merely an attempt to give some sort of impression of the wealth of culture, history, relaxation and enjoyment to be found in the city. Whether it is a visit to one of the numerous museums, a dip in the Rhine or an evening at the theatre, allow yourself to be inspired by the joys that await you in Basel.

We hope you have a fantastic time here in Basel.
