Situated where the Swiss, German, and French borders meet, Basel is considered the hub of Dreilandereck, this "three countries corner." Its location makes Basel a center of culture and history, brimming with important theaters and museums.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Fondation Beyeler and Sammlung Rosengart. Step out of the city life by going to Lake Lucerne and Papiliorama. Get out of town with these interesting Basel side-trips: Lucerne (Jesuitenkirche, Hofkirche, & more), Munot (in Schaffhausen) and Aarburg Castle (in Aarburg). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Altstadt-Spaziergange durch Basel, pause for some serene contemplation at St. Ursenkathedrale, step into the grandiose world of Schloss Hünegg, and steep yourself in history at Festung Vitznau.
