Cheap Flights to Basel

A Taste of Basel


Flights to Basel land in one of Switzerland’s most under-rated destinations! Rich in architecture both old and new, Basel is set along the Rhine river and has a beautiful medieval town centre, filled with museums and places of interest.

Basel has over two dozen museums, ranging from the traditional Kunstmuseum Basel, to the animated mechanical modern art displayed in the Museum Jean Tinguely.

The streets in Basel’s old town are lined with thriving restaurants and café’s serving local food like bratwurst with rosti, which is a must try. There is also the ultra-modern BarRouge, with its panoramic views of the city.

Basel is well known for its carnival’s and festivals including Basler Fasnacht and Basel Herbstmesse, where rides, food stalls, markets and parades light up the city around Messeplatz, Barfüsserplatz and Münsterplatz and bring local traditions to light. With some of the hottest weather in Switzrland it's nice to take a boat trip on the Rhine (Rhein) River or cool off in a city fountain. Being in Basel in the summer could leave you thinking you're actually in Italy as locals wiz by on scooters and the pavements are packed with people eating and drinking and soaking up the European atmosphere.
