Visit Basel in 2024

As Switzerland's third-largest city, Basel boasts an eclectic mix of old and new. The city is renowned for its well-preserved Old Town with cobblestone streets and medieval buildings, such as the iconic red sandstone Basel Minster and the Rathaus, the town hall with its colorful façade.

However, Basel is not all about the past. It's a dynamic city that embraces modernity as much as tradition. This is particularly evident in its love for design and contemporary art, with the city hosting over 40 museums, including the Kunstmuseum, the world's oldest public art collection, and the Fondation Beyeler, a modern classic.

Beyond its cultural allure, Basel is also known for being a hub of education and commerce, hosting the headquarters of various multinational corporations and renowned universities. Furthermore, its location along the Rhine River gives the city a relaxed, almost Mediterranean vibe, with locals and visitors alike enjoying the riverbanks during the summer months.
