Basel Offers Free Travel and Tours for Foodies
Justine Tyerman

Basel is a graceful city dissected by the beautiful Rhine River which exerts a peaceful, tranquil influence on the compact metropolis of 200,000 people, the country’s third most populous city. And it’s an even more enticing destination to visit thanks to the inclusion of free travel and foodie tours in Basel.

The city, in the north-west corner of Switzerland, is known as the art and culture capital of the nation. There are 40 museums within 37 square kilometres, making it an absolute paradise for art aficionados. The cuisine is superb too… and public transport is free with the Basel Card issued by your hotel.
