What's there to do in Basel?


Sweet fanny Adams.. Spend your money in a UK city you haven’t seen before. Maybe Cardiff?? Take your bikes and cycle the Taff trail. Then do the bike ride from Abervergany to Talybont on usk.. Go see some castles..

Switzerland was nice until the point I had to pay nearly 20 euros for a bacon barm with beans and a bottle of juice at the airport
Hurry, soon you will need 3 visas to do a similar trip. Enjoy.

I'm going to Basel in March and will be doing a daytrip to the picturesque Colmar in France. Only 45 mins on the train.

I used to do similar for work, nice scenic train ride and lovely around Colmar and the surrounding towns.

I recommend Strasbourg for a long weekend, and tarte flambé

For anyone in to scenic rail journeys, you can use this as a cheap way to do the Bernina. We did it a few years back.

Day 1: Fly to Basel, overnight there. City is pleasant enough to wander around and you get free public transport with a hotel booking.
Day 2: Train to Chur, overnight there. I'd recommend arriving fairly late as there isn't a lot to see.
Day 3: Bernina Express to Tirano. Train onwards in to Italy - we added a night in Bergamo and flew back from there, you could also do Milan.
Day 4: Morning exploring whichever Italian city you decided to go on to then fly home.

You can get cheap Bernina tickets using a trick explained on Seat61 - seat61.com/Ber…htm

We did it in February, it had been quite a mild winter according to the conductor but even then at the top the snow was up to window level on the train. Outstanding scenery, it might even be better to do in May. You could add a nice on Lake Como, we passed on that as February didn't seem the best time.

Trains in Italy are dirt cheap, as are hotels and food. Swiss hotels aren't too bad but food costs more. The three of us paid 100 euro in Bergamo for an excellent three course meal with wine, whereas in Switzerland we were paying 15-20 euro for something basic.
Plenty to do in Basel. I fly to Basel-Mulhouse in my private jet when I want to go watch shopping.

We did the opposite... Bad mistake, should have stayed in Milan! Didn't like Geneva at all, I'm told the journey wasn't that scenic, I wouldn't know as I'd made the mistake of getting vending machine coffee on December 27th - obviously the machine hadn't been serviced since before Christmas and it made me very, very ill...
This is close to Europa Park in Germany which is definitely worth checking out if you're a theme park fan.

Why take a polluting flight to a boring place where everything is three times more expensive than UK? That's stupid
Even a cappuccino in McDonald's costs £4

UK is waaaaay better. It's cheaper less polluting travel native language.

No surprises how you voted with Brexit.

I looked through the pictures of various McDonald's in Basel and there was very few pictures of people smiling it reminds me of the Bodysnatchers film with Donald Sutherland. It must be quite a sad place.

If you like that kind of vibe then go for it just make sure you take at least £500 per person spending money for the week if you plan on going out for drinks and basic food.

Not sure McDonald’s is a fair representation of Switzerland but okay
