Great Hospitality at Basel Hotels   by Nancy Eben

Featured Basel Hotels
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.
