Basel in a very beautiful and quaint city. The locals are very nice and helpful; many speak english.
Basel has several parks and lots of running/ walking trails throughout the city. There are several shops throughout the older area across the bride. The city is pretty much shut down on sundays and it is difficult to even find a restaurant. However, parades are frequent on sundays. There is plenty of nightlife if you know where to look for it. The city is also extremely expensive, so be prepared for a $20 fast food burger.
VERY INTERESTING MIDEVAL TOWN WITH A BIG HISTORY. LOT OF MONUMENTS, OLD VILLAS AND NICE RHINEBRIDGES, MOST IMPORTAND IS THE MEDIUM-BRIDGE (MITTLERE BRUECKE) EASILY REACHAGLE BY FOOT OR TRAM.
THEN THE MARKETPLACE WITH THE CITIZEN-TOWER (RATHAUS)
Just beautifully,loved its friendliness,food and wine clean and cumfortable hotel close to all attractions station,Rhine river shopping.
And walking was safe and great fast tram service,all over the area,the hotel provided fee tram tickets.
Not much sightseeing places, the only one is that you can swim in the river in the evening which is a lot of fun
Basel has some interesting Sights to see. It is situated directly at the border to France and Germany, so french, english and german language are spoken.
You can either pay in Swiss currency or in Euros.. but be warned, it s a very expensive place. We visited the Kunstmuseum Basel with its Picassos. A walk through the old town is beautiful.
