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.

Basel Christmas Market, Switzerland's biggest Christmas Market, turns 40 this year. With lamplight and adorned trees setting the city centre scene for 180 stalls bursting with tantalising aromas, it is an indulgent way to get into the festive spirit. Be sure to try the Basel gingerbread (Läckerli) over a mulled wine.
