Basel

— 5 nights
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.
St. Ursenkathedrale and Basel Paper Mill Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore and learn at Glasi Hergiswil and Jean Tinguely Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Basel: Lake Brienz (in Brienz), Bern (Zentrum Paul Klee (Paul Klee Center) & The Cathedral of Bern) and Lucerne (The Rosengart Collection & Hofkirche). There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Fondation Beyeler, make a trip to Tinguely-Brunnen, take an in-depth tour of Landesmuseum, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
