Tourist attractions in Basel Region


Major tourist attractions in Schweizer Mittelland, SwitzerlandBasel is a traditional Swiss city in every sense. The region of Basel is situated in the northwest of Switzerland. It borders with Germany and France and is well known for the nearby Jura landscape. Basel is filled with appealing tourist attractions that allow visitors to have a memorable holiday in Switzerland. The whole region is pristinely beautiful with forested hills, numerous cathedrals, fortresses, over 1000 km well marked trails for hikers and various zoological parks that make it quite an interesting place to visit. Tourists will find that the majority of the main attractions are located around the Old Town, on the southerly bank of greater Basel and on the northern side of Little Basel. For children the Basel’s Zoological gardens are extremely popular particularly its huge monkey house. Who so ever walks through the Dornach is surprised by its unique architecture. Another major attraction is The Natural History Museum that is like a tour of present and past. It gives an opportunity to the visitors to have a visit to the remotest corner of our planet where the most beautiful minerals originate or into the distant past when the planet earth is ruled by Dinosaurs. The exhibitions cover virtually all the aspects of natural sciences. The other major attraction is Museum Jean Tinguely that is devoted to the life and works of Jean Tinguely who was a famous artist who made sculptors in iron. Almost 40 museums make Basel the city with the highest density of museums in the country. Basel is a green city. The Botanical Gardens, several parks and the banks of the Rhine are perfect places to relax and linger for a while. The Etoscha House at the biggest zoo in Switzerland offers spectacular insights into the Namibian Savannah. On a travel trip to Switzerland Basel is a must visit destination.
