  • Basel's main shopping street through the middle of the old town between the market place and bench with prestigious shops of all price ranges. The higher you go the Bank square, the shops are more exclusive. It has a few Cafés and restaurants where you can watch the hustle and bustle and the street performers. Worth seeing are also the side streets.

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.
