Explore Culture in Basel

Near the borders of France and Germany, Basel sits on the Rhine River in Switzerland. This cultural city contains the highest concentration of museums in the country. The city also hosts the annual art market each June, and if you’re drawn to nature, the city center’s Zoo Basel and zoological gardens are a main draw for families and couples.

Basel also boasts interesting architecture, such as the stunning Munster Cathedral, created from red sandstone and a multi-colored tile roof. Don’t miss the Spalentor city gates, a hold out from when the city was walled.

If you’re mesmerized by ancient ruins, the Augusta Raurica Roman ruins are just a day trip away from Basel. Take the Rheinfähre ferry tour to see the city from a different point of view.
