How to visit 3 countries at once?
Head to the northwestern part of Switzerland to Basel, the “Dreiländereck” of Switzerland, Germany and France. Basel is the cultural capital of Switzerland having 40 museums and many events such as Baselworld, which is a Watch and Jewellery trade show of the international industry.
Most of the city’s sights are concentrated in the Old Town with narrow medieval of friendly and approachable locals.
A big attraction for tourists is the Rathaus, an impressive 500 year old sandstone building painted in…RED! Also, the modern architecture worth a wonder.
There are numerous restaurants serving most common types of ethnic cuisine (Indian, Thai, Chinese, Italian, Mexican, Japanese, etc.). We had a mouth-watering pizza at Molino Pizza, which is located on Steinenvorstadt, a street with various dinning opportunities. The prices are similar to Zurich: a pizza can vary from 18-25 euros and a beer 7-10 euros.
We simply loved the Basel vibes as we participated to Fashnacht by mistake, sun was shining and parking was cheaper on Sunday.
