Day Trips from Basel with Traserbas
Look at a map and Basel is pretty much in the centre of Europe. It’s also very close to Switzerland’s borders with France and Germany. That means Basel is a great starting point for making a tour of the highlights of central Europe.
But Basel is a fascinating place itself, bursting with history. Don’t leave without enjoying the medieval Old Town around Marktplatz, with its red-sandstone town hall. You should also check out the 12th-century Gothic cathedral, which contains the tomb of Erasmus, the 16th-century Dutch scholar.
