Cheap flights to Basel

World-class food, unforgettable festivals and a capital of culture – Basel is a city that likes to impress.  Folklore, medieval customs, world-class museums and a hodgepodge of different cultures best sums up Switzerland’s second largest city, Basel.

Sat on the border with Germany and France, this city used to be an important trade route back in the 14th and 15th centuries. Today it’s a tourist Mecca of medieval buildings, Gothic churches and bucket loads of charm. The old town is the usual Swiss mix of riverside views, leafy courtyards, Romanesque cathedrals and enough chic boutiques to leave your credit card trembling. 



Whether you are a fashionista or amateur historian, you should check out the “History Under Your Feet” exhibition at Spielzeug Welten Museum Basel. It charts 3,000 years of history through the 220 shoes that are on display. The highlight of the event has to be an Egyptian shoe from 1000 BC (1 Steinenvorstadt, spielzeug-welten-museum-basel.ch).
