As you stroll through the old town of Basel, one of the most intact and beautiful in Europe, you’ll be amazed at its unparalleled architectural diversity. Each corner features buildings from the 15th century as well as those designed by contemporary, internationally renowned architects. Due to its small size, the city is easily explored on foot. Here you will discover... More

You should lose your way a bit throught the small streets of the city. You would discover many nice shops, cafes and such. The old city is not that big so you can cover good ground in few days.

An experience, especially starting late afternoon and going into early evening. Dont forget to cross the bridge on the river or even take the river ferry from one side of Basel to the other. Simple pleasure!

Beautiful neighborhood with a lot of fascinating historical and architectural detail. We had fun wandering the quieter streets and window shopping. We only had a few hours in Basel and we would love to come back to see more!

Another must see area of Basel. Both architecturally and shopping. Obviously famous and can see by the number of tourists who visited here. As with all things Swiss not cheap to spend in the shops.

Lots of interesting little shops and cafes to see in the old town. The streets and lanes twist and turn up and down the hill and there's always something just around the next corner. Nice for a wander around.
