Gastronomy & shopping
Basel is a cultural city for lovers of fine wining and dining. The city's unique location on the border triangle has had a profound influence on its cuisine. But it is not only in the area of food where the inhabitants of Basel can enjoy the finer things in life - the city also has a wealth of shopping opportunities on offer!
For lovers of fine wining and dining the city has long since lost its status as a hidden gem. The city has more than 20 restaurants with entries in either the Gault Milau or Michelin guides. No less astonishing is the fact that there is so much variety.
The variety is also evident when it comes to shopping, with luxurious labels such as Hermès or Louis Vuitton and shops selling fine shoes, fashion items, books or other specialities, from small boutiques to large department stores - in Basel you will find everything your heart desires.
