The beautiful city of Basel is placed just so, along a bend in the Rhine River. The city is located roughly where the French, German and Swiss borders touch. It is filled to bursting with museums and is a wonderful place for art lovers.
Basel is obviously a very beautiful city. Anywhere you go, you will always be met with scenic vistas, owing to the natural beauty brought to the city by the River Rhine. Basel is also known to have the highest number of museums in all of Switzerland! It is also often said to be the cultural capital of the country. Here, you will find a mix of the traditional and the modern -- antique shops, old book stores and old town squares mingle with well-designed modern buildings, chic designer boutiques and more. If you're visiting in spring, be sure to take a look around you at the plethora of cherry trees, which blossom beautifully during this season.
