Canton of Basel

Trip Planner Europe  /  Switzerland  /  Canton of Basel
Museums Sightseeing Historic Sites
At the heart of Europe is the Canton of Basel, a region often labelled the "Cultural Capital of Switzerland" thanks to the abundance of theatres and museums, a thriving art scene, and excellent dining in its capital city of Basel. The milder climate here yields a more laid-back, Mediterranean atmosphere, where rolling green hills and magnificent views exude serenity. Tour farming villages, follow the well-marked hiking paths, or stroll along the water on the Basel Rhine Promenade. Marvel at the quaint, historical buildings and shops in Bern's Old Town area, and enjoy the city's vivacious nightlife. In the build up to your vacation in Canton of Basel, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Switzerland travel itinerary maker.
