Basel is divided by the Rhine River, which snakes its way past the historic Grossbasel, where the medieval architecture is one of the main tourist attractions, and Kleinbasel on the northern Rhine embankment, where most of the bars, clubs and restaurants can be found. Despite the Swiss people’s reputation for being rather reserved, they do like to party and the city’s club scene is vibrant and colourful, offering something for everybody.

Many of the best hotels and guesthouse are located in the old part of the city, but a taxi journey doesn’t cost that much and it is better to travel by taxi than getting caught drink-driving!

When taking Basel Airport taxis to the hotel or guesthouse in whatever destination the overnight accommodation has been booked, it is not a bad idea to ask the driver, if day rates are available. Although car hire is easily arranged at the airport and is available at competitive prices, not everybody enjoys driving abroad.

The added bonus of hiring a taxi for a day or half day is that taxi drivers usually know the best place for dining and going out – namely those places that are not in any official tourist guide!

It is easy to get around on foot or by tram within the city centre of Basel. As one of the most splendid examples of Romanesque and Gothic style architecture and one of Basel’s most popular tourist attractions, the monumental Cathedral (Münster) is overlooks the Rhine River and neighbouring Kleinbasel on the opposite side. The foundation stones for the Cathedral were laid as far back as 1019, but the building as it stands today wasn’t completed until 1500.

Basel tourist attractions include more than 20 museums and art collections, of which the Kunstmuseum Basel (Art Museum Basel) is one of the most popular. It is home to 19th and 20th century works of art by influential artists like Picasso, but the museum also houses a large collection of medieval and renaissance art. Some of the highlights include paintings by Hans Holbein and Hans Baldung Grien.
