Basel

Trip Planner Europe  /  Switzerland  /  Canton of Basel  /  Basel
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.

Where to stay in Basel

Business-oriented Basel offers an overwhelming amount of mid-range hotels catering to its business clientele. The city fills up during conferences and events, so be sure to plan accordingly. There are a number of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts too, but they tend to be pretty pricey. You'll find a handful of budget-friendly hostels just south of the city core. Keep in mind that as you move toward the outskirts of town for affordable accommodation, proximity to the train stations will be key. The good news is that a number of the hotels include public transport passes with the cost of a room.
