City-trip to Basel
Have you dreamed of visiting magical Switzerland? Then book a flight from Manchester to Basel and enjoy the beauty that this mountainous country has to offer. Discover the stunning cathedral with its red sandstone walls and quaint multi-coloured roof tiles, which emerges dominantly above the city’s roofs, majestically watching over the city. Meander down from the cathedral to the Basler Pfalz and enjoy a magnificent view of the Old Town and all the way over to the Three-Countries Corner.
The imposing red and yellow city hall is the central landmark around the local market place, where fresh, local fruit and vegetables are on sale every Sunday. Finally, hop across the Rhine using the Mittlere Brücke (Middle Bridge), one of the oldest bridges between Lake Constance and the North Sea. This massive land mark looks even more beautiful during the night, when subtle lighting puts it into the spotlight of the cityscape. With flights leaving regularly from Manchester to Basel, this wonderland of history is just a few hours away.
