Where cosmopolitan bustle is combined with comfort and urbanity meets tradition: discover the Basel lifestyle. Experience the diversity of the landscape in Basel Land.
In addition, the location on the border area of France and Germany guarantees variety and top quality on the menu. Whether you're looking for traditional cuisine, exquisite haute cuisine, or exotic specialties - the local gastronomy leaves nothing to be desired.
In the summer months, Basel desire to enjoy life is particularly evident. Many Basel locals indulge in a recreational pastime with a difference: every year in August the official Rhine swim is held, which has now become a tradition. And on all other days too, you can swim in the cool water in the city on the Rhine. If you mingle with the swimmers, you'll experience firsthand why the Mediterranean seems so close here.
