Book flights to Bâle

Bâle is located right on the border between Switzerland and France, along the Rhine River. It's actually the third largest city in Switzerland, but with a French influence. The city is known for its historical centre, with a beautiful cathedral and a well-preserved old town. There are also plenty of museums to explore, including some that cover art, history, and even pharmaceuticals. If you are a museum buff, you might even consider this a museum capital. And, while Switzerland is known for its mountains, Basel is in the flatter part of the country, so the climate is mild with warm summers and cool winters.
