Book a SWISS flight from Dubai to experience the high culture of this city perched on the Rhine or as a base for exploring the beautiful SWISS region. Basel, the "pocket-sized metropolis" as it calls itself, has a generous helping of the world’s most renowned art museums.
Kunstmuseum Basel and Fondation Beyeler head the list of Basel's great art museums. However, you will also find historical museums like the Jewish Museum of Switzerland, a Toy Museum or a Museum on the History of Pharmacy. This is a good thing to have if you visit Basel in the winter, but then you may as well be up in the scenic mountains nearby for a day of skiing or snowboarding.
Don’t miss the unique carnival of Basel, Fasnacht, which is a wild party going on for three days and features scary masks, drums and flutes starting at four in the morning. In the summer take a stroll down the banks of the Rhine River or take a boat tour. In the beautiful medieval old town, you should visit the Münster, the Romanesque cathedral, and the Renaissance-style Rathaus, city hall.
This part of town is best explored by walking; many medieval back alleys would not allow a car to go through anyway. Basel is part of a tri-state area, from here you can go to the nearby Black Forest in Germany or the Alsace region of France. Enjoy your time in the beautiful SWISS destination Basel.
