Basel holidays can take lots of forms. It’s a top-notch cultural venue. The Basel Theater has an excellent reputation for big names and an eclectic repertoire.
Art Basel is a world-ranking art fair and the city is synonymous with watches and jewellery thanks to its annual Baselworld fare. The Old Town is a rewarding, if stretching place to stroll with its imposing Romanesque and Renaissance architecture. Over the river, Little Basel is where you dress down and live it up. And if ever you wanted to swim across the Rhine, this is the place. In the hot summers, locals like nothing better.
