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.
Basel's Old Town and The Cathedral of Bern are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Basel Paper Mill Museum and Fondation Beyeler. Venture out of the city with trips to Pilatus Luzern (in Kriens), Collegiale Saint-Germain (in Moutier) and The Factory Escape Game (in Courtetelle). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Jean Tinguely Museum, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Brienz, explore the striking landscape at Taubenlochschlucht, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Offene Kirche Elisabethen.
