With the River Rhine curving through it, Basel is a beautiful historic city. One of the most cultural regions in Switzerland, the city is also the most linguistically diverse, thanks in part to its position on the border of France and Germany. Explore the historic streets of the romantic Old Town, visit the imposing red sandstone Cathedral or take in one of Basel's wide selection of museums, including the Museum of Cultures, just off the lovely Münsterplatz.
