I came across only a handful of cities in Switzerland that can match up to the beauty of Basel. What amazed me was the fact that the houses itself were a piece of art. There are so many things that you can do out here, If you are planning to visit Basel, here are a few things that you need to check out.
Take a Tour of the Old Town Center
Believe it or not, it is one of the best old town centers to be found in Europe. I took a walk around the city as this is a great way to learn about it. Also, you will be able to find many architectural gems and sights around the city. I visited Munster, the cathedral. No doubt, it is one of the primary sights in the city.
Go for a Boat Ride
Another interesting thing to do is to go for a boat ride. There are different kinds of them. I took the one that took me from the main part of the city on the northern bank of the river, into Kleinbasel. It offers a great view. If you have to check out all the major sights then you can go for the harbor tour.
Drop-In at a Wine Bar
Since you have enjoyed an overview of the city, it is time to relax for a while now. You are going to come across small wine bars. Just grab a glass and enjoy. Some of these bars have outdoor sitting where you will be able to enjoy the view of the city. Also, each of these bars offers a wide range of choices when it comes to wine. Do not forget to taste the cheese of Switzerland with the wine. I simply loved it.
