Hotels in Basel, Switzerland
Hospitality at Basel Hotels by Nancy Eben
The third largest city of Switzerland,
Basel is a modern and progressive city that is a budding tourist destination.
The city from years has enjoyed being an important trade center because
it is country's only cargo port. The location of the city is unique, as
it shares borders with both Germany and France, even shares its airport
and railway network with these neighboring countries. Basel is a city full
of surprises, with a 2000-year history, located on the Rhine River.
Basel is the least cherished city
of Switzerland but a wonderful city, which is quieter than Zurich, farther
from the Alps then Bern is and less international than Geneva city. On
a city, tour tourists can discover the city's many attractions and places
of interest. One can take a walk of the Old Town with its quaint streets
and historic buildings, then give a visit to the Cathedral and several
other historical churches. Basel's seat of the government the Town Hall,
the old city gates - Spalentor, St. Johanns-Tor and St.-Alban-Tor, the
Jewish Basel and the Zoological Garden are all worth visiting sites.
|The city with its unique location
bordering France and Germany is one of the operators of the world famous
Euro Airport, managed by the three nations Switzerland, Germany and France.
Hotels in Basel takes the full advantage of this and provides with excellent,
comfortable accommodation options. Tourists to these three nations find
Basel hotels an important accommodation center.
Basel takes pride in its history,
but at the same time very open to modern ideas. Art tops on the list of
priorities and forms an integral part of the city as is the river Rhine.
A single walk in the city lets you see many art objects that so portray
the city's image. Basel city is also home to the oldest university in Switzerland,
around 30 museums, the country's first musical theatre, a reputed internationally
town theatre and numerous other small theatres. A visit during a jazz festival
is a treat with top-class performers performing. Basel city also is flourishing
on the conference and convention trade, with the vast Messe being Switzerland's
largest conference/exhibition centre. Delegates and attendees to major
events often occupy hotels in Basel in the city, thus making reservations
