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.
Get some historical perspective at Basel Minster and Offene Kirche Elisabethen. Get a sense of the local culture at Fondation Beyeler and Art Basel. There's much more to do: wander the streets of Altstadt-Spaziergange durch Basel, buy something for everyone on your list at Manor Basel, make a trip to Rathaus, and see the interesting displays at Basel Paper Mill Museum.

For where to stay, maps, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Basel trip planner .
