There's lots to see and do in Basel. Whether it's visiting one of almost 40 museums, enjoying some opera, ballet or theatre or walking around some of the city's beautiful parks.

Shoppers too will not be disappointed. Pick up some local produce at the Petersplatz or Marktplatz markets or for those with a keen eye for designer detail, there's plenty of luxury brand stores within the city.

The ferry, river boat and the local trams are great ways to explore Basel. You can also take a stroll down the banks of the river Rhine, which is bustling with life, or wind your way through the city streets, admiring the contrasting modern and historical architecture found throughout Basel.

Situated close to the borders of France and Germany, continental influences are evident in many of the city's restaurants and cafes, which provide a wide variety of options for food lovers. There's also fantastic nightlife in Basel, with a wide selection of bars and nightclubs for those who like to explore after dark.
