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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Neuchatel (Lac de Neuchatel, The Collegiale church, &more), Freibad Schachen (in Aarau) and Schloss Ebenrain (in Sissach). The adventure continues: make a trip to Rathaus, wander the streets of Basel's Old Town, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and examine the collection at Basel Paper Mill Museum.

Plan my Basel trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Basel. In August, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) to allow time to drive to Lucerne.

In north-central Switzerland, Lucerne represents a small city boasting a well-preserved old town.
On the 14th (Sat), take in the views from Chapel Bridge, pause for some photo ops at Lion Monument, and then enjoy the sand and surf at Ufschotti Park. Keep things going the next day: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Rigi and then explore the activities along Lake Zurich.

To find photos, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Lucerne trip planner.

Traveling by car from Basel to Lucerne takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or take a bus. In September, daily temperatures in Lucerne can reach 22°C, while at night they dip to 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 16th (Mon) to allow time for the car ride back home.
