Basel in Switzerland | Switzerland self planned Holiday Diaries

Basel in Switzerland, located in north western part of Switzerland where the borders of France, Germany and Switzerland meet, has a vibrant earthy vibe. Basel was our base city on the self planned trip to Switzerland, not out of choice but mostly because the husband’s work needed him to be there for couple of days. I did not know much about the city beforehand and it took me lots of research before planning the trip to Switzerland. Basel seemed to be quite a staid city from most of the accounts I read on the travel blogs & articles. However, Basel surprised me with this vibrant culture, heritage, rich repository of art & culture and its multiple layers. Spending our time in Basel during the Switzerland trip was one of the best decisions we took, as it also was economical than other more popular Swiss cities. Sharing my experience of Basel in Switzerland.
