We purchased the city tour at the tourist office in the train station. Our guide was very knowledgeable and presented a great history of Basel. This is a must tour if you are in Basel.

The Basel Altstadt has not kept its mediaeval look and feel as well as nearby Strasbourg, but it does have a plethora of great 19th century architecture, great pedestrianized shopping streets and lots of nice terraces to sit down on and enjoy a Brezel.

We spent two days here before embarking on a Rhine Cruise and enjoyed the lovely quiet pedestrian area near Hotel Basel, where we stayed. The lively marketplace has beautiful food and flowers, good street food and a friendly atmosphere. The remarkable city hall is just across a busy street -- watch out for the ever-present trams going up and down. Stop for delicious ice cream at the Movenpik Hotel, take a walk along the Rhine and see the lovely homes that line the walkway.

A place to wander around absorbing all the city has to offer. Don't miss the market, especially on Saturday!

Beautiful and well-preserved Altstadt. It is a must to visit this beautiful old town. The market square, the shopping streets and the university surroundings are impecables. Lots of good places to eat or have a snack. You must walk looking all the balconies with fresh flowers and beautiful shutters.

Unforgettable!!!
