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.
Appreciate the collections at Fondation Beyeler and Sammlung Rosengart. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Museum Tinguely and Altstadt-Spaziergange durch Basel. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Basel: St. Ursenkathedrale (in Solothurn), Lake Brienz (in Brienz) and Bern (Zentrum Paul Klee & The Cathedral of Bern). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Basel Paper Mill Museum, contemplate the waterfront views at Thunersee, don't miss a visit to Tinguely-Brunnen, and get engrossed in the history at Swiss National Museum.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, go to the Basel itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from France, the closest major airports are Zürich Airport and Basel Mulhouse Freiburg. In July, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 16°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
