Basel-Mulhouse

Basel

Located in the northwest of Switzerland, and close to both the French and German borders, Basel is gaining an impressive reputation for successfully mixing the old with the new. Take a stroll along the banks of the Rhine and you'll find stunning architecture, dating back to the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, alongside award-winning contemporary structures. Head into Basel's old town and take in the splendour of classic Swiss architecture, from tall thin townhouses, to grand multi-coloured mansions, to countless perfect plazas with their expertly choreographed fountains. Don't forget to check out the majestic red stone Münster Cathedral, which has been standing in Basel city centre since Roman and Gothic times. In summary, Basel is a sophisticated European gem and is definitely worth adding to your future travel destinations, so why not fly with Austrian Airlines to Basel and discover a city rich in culture and steeped in history.
