Freiburg or Basel for Christmas market base

Have just booked flights to Freiburg / Basel airport for a weekend christmas break in 2014 but now can't decide where to stay!

Thinking Freiburg as then we can visit Colmar and Basel for day trips and have the atmosphere of a German town to stay in.....or do we do Basel as the transport is easier to these other destinations from there but its more expensive and not sure it has the same atmosphere.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

"and not sure it has the same atmosphere."

Well, to my mind Basel is way more attractive than Freiburg and the atmosphere of it's christmas markets is equal to Freiburg in any way. But neither matches up e.g. Colmar or Strasbourg.

However, it is also a fact, that Basel is a really expensive place to visit.
