Whether you prefer lifestyle, culture, architecture or nights out: Basel has the flair of a large city and is well worth a visit in summer too.
We’ll take you to the locals’ favourite places. Just a few streets away from the classic tourist areas yet still at the heart of the city. Take a walk from the St. Johann district to the Klybeck and Matthäus districts and on through the Kleinbasel old town – you’re sure to meet more residents than tourists here. You’ll eat where the people of Basel take their lunch break, pass by hidden gems of shops and join the queue with those who know where to find the best ice-cream in the city. While strolling through the city’s colourful and diverse districts you may well imagine yourself in a city on the other side of the world instead of right there on the Rhine.
Book your accommodation in a Basel hotel now and, as well as a BaselCard, we’ll give you a free food tour worth CHF 29.
The food tour is available from Tuesday to Saturday.
