Basel

4.2
Situated where the Swiss, German, and French borders meet, Basel is considered the hub of Dreilandereck, this "three countries corner." Its location makes Basel a center of culture and history, brimming with important theaters and museums. The city has acted as the site of numerous peace negotiations and international meetings. Although it is located in Switzerland's German-speaking region, the majority of residents speak Baseldytsch as a first language. Basel's old town center along the Rhine shares a cultural likeness with the French Alsace region and Germany's Black Forest; in fact, the city has suburbs in both countries. Basel is in Canton of Basel. Make the most of your holiday in Basel by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Switzerland trip planner.
