Situated upon the crossroads of three nations, Switzerland’s third biggest city awaits with its mysteries and sights. Book flights from Dublin to Basel with SWISS or one of our subsidiaries and discover the wonders of this multinational Swiss region.
Basel is perched on the borders of Germany, Switzerland, and France, where it serves as a hub of transportation – particularly rail transport – that allows for easy access and travel to all three countries. Basel is a moderately small city by comparison to other global metropolises, but it more than compensates with its fascinating archaeological and cultural sites and booming nightlife scene. It is these things and more that make Basel a top destination for travelers from all over the globe.
A city at the border of three nations
Basel is home to everything from ancient heritage sites to medieval churches, as well as modern restaurants and many nightlife opportunities. A few of the city’s more prominent sites include the red sandstone Münster, a Gothic structure first built in the 14th century and reconstructed a few times over the preceding centuries. The Old Catholic Prediger Kirche and the House of St Margarethental are also essentials for anyone interested in old churches and their architecture. Not too far from the city are the Celtic settlements of Gasfabrik, Müsterhügel and Alstadt.
Basel can also claim a number of museums with numerous galleries of fine arts and historical artifacts from both Switzerland and around the globe. Some of the most popular of these are the Antikenmuseum Basel und Sammlung Ludwig, and the Kunsthalle (art museum) Basel. The city also has a unique culinary tradition that includes items such as Basler Laeckerli cookies and Maessmogge candies. Making your way through Basel is made easy with the municipal tram and bus services. Whether going a little further afield into the Swiss alps, or to cities in France and Southern Germany, the city’s rail network connects to many other destinations.
