Basel is the oldest university city in Switzerland.
The city’s historic landmarks include the vast market square and the late Romanesque-Gothic cathedral, both of which have richly decorated red sandstone town halls.
A visit to the “Läckerli Huus” to enjoy the classic Basel honey cake is well worth your time while walking through the old town, via modest boutiques, antique book shops, and new designer shops.
Basel is both traditional and progressive, as seen by a number of modern structures constructed by notable architects such as Herzog & de Meuron, Mario Botta, Diener & Diener, and Richard Meyer.
