Basel is a dynamic city of business and industry. In particular, it has become a thriving center for trade fairs. Historically, its commercial success was due to the River Rhine, and that is still one of its major trade routes.
The river is also responsible for the relatively mild climate. Take a walk along its banks and enjoy the many food stalls. Basel is a city of traditions. If possible, time your visit to coincide with the 3-day Fasnacht festival, which has been going on for over 600 years. On the first day, all the lights in the city are extinguished and painted lanterns are lit in the streets. Later there are processions and parties.* You can travel from Zurich to Basel by train. Your train ticket for this connection is included.
