Basel lies at the heart of Europe, on both banks of the Rhine. The city is the center of the idyllic border triangle of France, Germany, and Switzerland – lying between the Swiss Jura, Germany’s Black Forest, and the Vosges in Alsace. Home to 40 museums, the city of culture for connoisseurs has the highest concentration of museums in the country. Basel also has a beautiful Old Town, modern architecture, and the Rhine – an inviting spot to rest for a while. It is a young and dynamic university city with a very international atmosphere, making it perfect for a city break.
Basel also hosts the world’s most famous international art fair - Art Basel - taking place every year in June at Messe Basel. 287 of the world's leading Modern and contemporary art galleries display premier paintings, drawings, sculptures, installations, prints, photography, films, video, and digital art by over 4,000 artists.
