With a load of museums and a beautiful home on the river Rhine, Basel is an attractive Swedish city for art lovers and urban explorers. Visitors will have plenty to see in the city center, and can begin in the Old Town, home to cobblestone streets lined with medieval buildings, cafés, bakeries, and museums. Be sure to pop into a chocolate shop to sample some legendary Swiss chocolate. Then visit the 500-year-old Rathaus (City Hall) in the Marktplatz, with its striking red facade and detailed rooftops.

Basel is home to one of the greatest privately owned art collections in the world at the Beyeler Foundation, where visitors can view works from artists like Andy Warhol, Van Gogh, Monet, and Picasso. If you’re looking for something to do outdoors, head down to the banks of the Rhine River and hop on a cruise boat. It’s a relaxing way to see the city and experience a trip down one of Europe’s most famous bodies of water.
