  • Beautiful gothic church, a bit dark and gloomy as the churches in Switzerland, but fascinating and original. Inside a coffee shop because it is also used for events not only religious

  • Decided to take a ride from Lucerne in Basel. Expensive turned out by train, first class 270 CHF double room, but comfortable. The train is a little more than an hour. Exit the station and proceed towards the Old City. On the way to the left and you will see the first item on the programme of this construction. The former Church, and now just a secular building. The Museum is not a Museum, but it is interesting. Inside there are even little café. But the main trick is the climb to the Tower! This is something. Of course only walking the steep stairs. And when you realize that it's difficult to you come to the last stage of the ascent ... and understand that all previous is nothing compared to what awaits you: a spiral staircase inside the Tower walls. Narrow enough so that if you nemelkij man with a backpack, go will be wiping the walls. A long staircase leads you to the open platform of the tower. Of course the view is stunning. As if you're floating above the city. Very very nice. But ... ahead awaits going down. Be careful. Small steps, and steep spiral staircase and narrow. Before lifting the building read private and hour of its content is worth CHF 100, so pay honestly for the climb 3 francs in cash, which is just a big bag of tricks. Nobody checks, but probably everyone in this case must be the controller himself. Good you walking through Basel.

  • We stopped by on our walk around Basel. The building is gorgeous. We wrote a prayer and lit a candle. It was peaceful and serene. A perfect place to reflect on our world during our travels.  more »

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.
