Activities & Excursions
Basel is lucky to have nice neighbours - not only because of the feeling of affinity that crosses international borders, but also because of the beautiful countryside and delicious culinary culture surrounding the city. But you do not have to leave Basel to discover exciting excursion destinations.
The views from the top of the Jura mountains, the Black Forest or the Vosges mountains - just a taste of what the Basel region has to offer. A short trip into the countryside will reveal a picturesque landscape rich in diversity.
The neighbouring cantons of Basel-Country and Solothurn, the Alsace and the Black Forest together form a vast recreational area with a wide variety of leisure activities to relax and enjoy or thrill and excite, as you wish.However, you don't have to go too far if you don't want to - the city itself has many green parks and lots of excursion destinations of its own to offer.
