What to see in Basel

Basel, Switzerland's cultural capital, harmoniously blends historic charm with artistic innovation. Along the serene Rhine River, its medieval Old Town and Gothic architecture coexist with world-class museums, vibrant galleries and modern design. This dynamic city is a hub for art, culture and creativity, offering an inviting blend of tradition and progress.

Begin your exploration of Basel at its historic heart, the charming Old Town. With its narrow winding streets, medieval buildings and cobblestone alleys, the Old Town exudes a timeless charm that invites you to step back in time. Start your journey at the magnificent Basel Minster, a stunning Gothic cathedral with twin towers that dominate the city's skyline. Climb the towers for panoramic views of the city and the Rhine River. Inside the cathedral, you'll find a richly decorated interior with intricate stained glass windows.

Basel’s reputation as an international hub for art and design is exemplified by two exceptional attractions located just a short drive away from the city: the Fondation Beyeler and the Vitra Campus. The Fondation Beyeler, situated in Riehen, a suburb of Basel, is a world-renowned art museum housed in a stunning Renzo Piano-designed building. The museum's collection features works by celebrated artists such as Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh and Claude Monet. Its picturesque park, blending art and nature, makes it a tranquil place for contemplation.

The Rhine River, which gracefully flows through Basel, offers a wonderful opportunity to explore the region from a unique perspective. Consider taking a leisurely Rhine River cruise to experience the scenic beauty of the surrounding landscapes, quaint villages and historic castles that line the riverbanks. These cruises often include commentary on the history and culture of the region, providing insights into the picturesque towns and landmarks you pass along the way. Some cruises even offer dining options, allowing you to savour Swiss cuisine while enjoying the serene journey.
