Basel is located at the elbow of the Rhine on the borders of France and Germany. Its special character, cosmopolitan and open-minded inhabitants, make Basel an easily comprehensible place. The town has the oldest university in Switzerland (1460), and has many museums and theaters. And Basel has increasingly established itself as the architectural capital of Switzerland!The multicultural Kleinbasel (on the right bank of the Rhine river) is the home of the alternative cultural scene. The town center is located on the left side of the river. The oldest and cheapest connections between the two banks of the Rhine river are the ferries. They are not only a tourist attraction but a means of public transport. Try it! From Basel you can also make excursions into the neighbouring regions of Germany and France.
