Basel Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Basel's sights can be easily explored on foot. The highest concentration of sights is around the old marketplace and the cathedral. The hilly surroundings of the city offer some excellent views and walks. Don't miss your chance to stand on the three countries corner (Switzerland, France and Germany). A good day-trip is a visit to Kaiseraugst, just some few kilometers from Basel. Here, you can visit the remnants of the oldest Roman city on the Rhine.
Jean Tinguely Museum, accessible by public transport, near the Roche offices. Great fun for all ages - see and manipulate some of the artist's kinetic sculptures.
Tinguely fountain in the city proper. It'll make one wonder why all fountains don't make such fun use of water pressure.
Fasnacht Festival, once a year - a tradition of costumes, music and fun.
Herbst messe, Autumn fair.
Stadtlauf- celebration, marathon, hosted or opening of the Christmas season.
