Getting there & exploring the City

Basel lies in the heart of Europe, on both banks of the Rhine. The city is the centre of the idyllic border triangle of France, Germany and Switzerland – lying between the Swiss Jura, Germany’s Black Forest and the Vosges in Alsace. Thanks to its manageable size and the excellent public transport network, it's quick and easy to get around the city.
