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
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
|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 a must.
