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 Fondation Beyeler. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Basel: Bern (Zentrum Paul Klee (Paul Klee Center) & The Cathedral of Bern), Lucerne (The Rosengart Collection & Hofkirche) and Lake Brienz (in Brienz). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Jean Tinguely Museum, engage your brain at Swiss Science Center Technorama, wander the streets of Basel's Old Town, and make a trip to Tinguely-Brunnen.
