Essentials in Basel

Old Town: Start your holidays in Basel in the Old Town at the Münster and then head to the Pfalz overlooking the Rhine. This is the perfect place to enjoy a picnic. Market square is your place to get fresh cheeses, bread and fruits, especially on Saturdays when the square is buzzing.

Kunstmuseum Basel: If you visit just one museum in Basel, make it this one. The permanent collection spans 19th and 20th century art including an entire room of Picasso's work.

Rhine River: In summer you can spend all day wanting along the banks of the Rhine. There is a 2 mile promenade on the Kleinbasel bank, even take a swim if you like!
