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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Zurich (Swiss National Museum, Friedhof Fluntern (Fluntern Cemetery), & more), Lucerne (Chapel Bridge, Lion Monument, & more) and Obertorturm (in Aarau). The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Zoo Basel.

To see reviews, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Basel trip planner.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airports are Zürich Airport, Basel Mulhouse Freiburg and Bern Belp Airport. Expect a daytime high around 22°C in May, and nighttime lows around 10°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
