Basel Flights Guide
Switzerland’s unique history, which has not been without war, has in the end made it one of the most peaceable nations on earth. Basel seems to capture that peaceful semblance in its ancient architecture, its picturesque river and its world-class museums.
Located on the Rhine River at the border with France and Germany, Basel is near to places such as the Black Forest and France’s Alsace. But within the city, wonderful architecture that has kept throughout the ages makes Basel an attractive destination unto itself. Perhaps the most intriguing of its buildings is the town hall, Rathaus in German. It brilliant red color sets it apart from the buildings tucked up against it. The town hall is located inside the historic Old Town, which is surrounded by the ring wall. There are a number of gates that remain standing, and serve to jettison the imagination into the past. Back through the old town’s narrow alleyways, one finds the Munster. The cathedral has stood since the end of the 15th century, and climbing its tower provides unparalleled views. Art from these ancient times is preserved in the Kuntmuseum Basel. These and many more Basel sites and museums await the voyager.
The nearby air hub is the EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg. EasyJet, TUIfly and Swiss International Airlines provide the bulk of flights, but many more carriers serve this airport.
