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.
Explore Basel's surroundings by going to Lake Brienz (in Brienz), Bern (Aare River, Einstein House (Einsteinhaus), &more) and Interlaken (Parasailing & Paragliding, Harderkulm, &more). There's much more to do: steep yourself in history at Basel Minster, take some stellar pictures from Pfalz, make a trip to Rathaus, and meet the residents at Zoo Basel.
