Basel City Breaks
The city of Basel stands on the border of Switzerland, Germany and France, straddling the mighty River Rhine. The Swiss city, which naturally takes influences from German, French and Swiss culture, is divided into 19 different 'quarters', each with its own individual flavour.
The historic heart of Basel, centred on the Grossbasel district, is the most beautiful part of the city, where you'll find the majestic Munster Cathedral located among narrow winding streets and pretty market squares.

Popular attractions on Basel tours
Explore the Cathedral
Basel's Munster Cathedral is built from red sandstone and is a pleasure to explore. Its design shows fine examples of both Romanesque and Gothic architectural styles.
Wander through the Altstadt
The Old Town part of Basel is perfect to explore on foot. Separated into two parts (Grossbasel and Kleinebasel), you'll enjoy wandering aimlessly through the twisting lanes that occasionally open up into pretty market squares.
Visit the Rathaus
Built in 1504, the City Hall has both Gothic (exterior) and Renaissance (interior) design styles. It is certainly worth visiting; make sure you see the impressive courtyard and council chambers while you are there.
