Take to the rushing Rhine

The River Rhine runs through the heart of Basel and is the perfect element for a spot of swimming and basking in the Swiss sun. Sunbathing on the banks is a popular pastime and summer excursion for locals and tourists alike. Purchase a ‘Wickelfisch’, a fish-shaped bag perfect for keeping your clothes dry, whilst you take a swim in the nearby waters – an unforgettable activity for those looking to get into the true Basel spirit.

A modern twist on a historic city

Basel is home to a plethora of award-winning architects who have won numerous Pritzker Prizes. Works from the likes of Herzog and De Meuron are situated in the centre of the town and can also be seen in London at the London’s Tate and in China at the Beijing Olympic Stadium. A wander around the town will allow you to uncover the architecturally excellent structures curated by the talented residents of the city.

A border between two countries

Situated at a junction between France and Germany has allowed Basel to incorporate the lifestyle and multicultural influences of its neighbouring relatives. As you indulge in a variation of local food and drinks you’ll soon uncover the continental twist that the location has taken on as its own over hundreds of years. On your visit, expect to hear locals speaking Swiss-German which has developed into their native speaking language.

A city of two dimensions

A city split by a river, Greater Basel and Little Basel have developed personas of their own over recent years. The cobbled streets and ancient, historic buildings crown the Greater Basel territory giving it an older and wiser feel to it. Whilst Little Basel offers a more casual vibe with vibrant cafes and edgy riverside alfresco dining.
