About Basel

No matter whether you've only got a day to spend in Basel or are planning a longer stay, if you're fascinated by art or looking for a place to simply relax and unwind – you will be spoilt for choice.

Enjoy summer in the sunshine along the Rhine at one of our many roof terraces or numerous other secluded spots. In winter, Barfüsserplatz and Münsterplatz are home to Basel’s Christmas market – one of the largest and most beautiful in Switzerland.
