Project Description

Basel Tourismus

Basel – means “Culture unlimited”. This slogan is programmatic, because in the Swiss city, urbanity meets tradition. With 40 museums on just 37 square kilometres, Basel has the highest museum density in Europe. The pocket-sized art scene includes world-famous museums such as the Kunstmuseum Basel, the Fondation Beyeler and the Vitra Museum.

Architecturally, Basel is the city of contrasts. On a city walk you will experience a journey through time in all eras. World-famous architects such as Herzog & de Meuron and Diener & Diener were at work in Basel.

Thanks to a Mediterranean climate with 300 days of sunshine a year, Basel exudes an open-air attitude to life: whether it’s bathing beaches on the Rhine, summer bars and open-air cinemas or festivals. In Basel, leisure time is spent outdoors.
