    Basel, Mulhouse, Colmar and Freiburg: four close neighbours perfect for those looking to getaway, relax, and discover something new. This transnational region is perhaps not on the list of Europe’s Top 10 tourist destinations, but that doesn't make it any less captivating and endearing. The world “enjoyable” takes on as many new meanings as there are places to visit: eye-opening, gourmand, original, bucolic...the list goes on!
    Each city, each area, has its charms: Basel has one of the highest numbers of museums per kilometre in the world! Colmar is home base for one of France’s most flavourful routes: the famous Route des Vins d’Alsace (Alsace Wine Route). Mulhouse is paradise for those who love all things mechanical, be they on roads or rails. Freiburg is the starting point for a myriad of hikes in the Black Forest hills. Start with the one in Schlossberg which offers a spectacular view of the city after just a small climb.
    A wealth of things to do whether as a family, among friends, or on a romantic getaway of a weekend, a week, or more! However you do it, you’ll have everything you need to recharge your batteries.

  • The top 10 things to do in Basel, Colmar and Freiburg

    Voir plus Voir moins
    • Wander around Basel and discover the best the city has to offer: The Cathedral, which was the last home of Erasmus; the magnificent Hotel de Ville, jewel of the Markplatz; the medieval gates of the Walls of Basel; the Mittlere Brücke, a bridge dating back to the 13th century, and more.
    • After historic Basel, get to know modern Basel. The Swiss are well-known for bold architecture. No fewer than 12 Pritzker Prize winning architects designed one of the buildings you’ll see here - the Pritzker being the Nobel Prize of architecture.
    • Swim in the Rhine. Thousands of people do so each summer. Place your dry clothes in a Wickelfisch (a waterproof bag) and let yourself be carried by the current until you're ready to hop back on shore for a cool drink in a café.
    • Visit some of the many museums that make Basel the cultural capital of Switzerland. Which are the most visited? The Kunstmuseum for its Picasso collection, and the Tinguely, which is dedicated to plastic artist Jean Tinguely, a national treasure.
    • Stroll through Colmar, the jewel of Alsace, where you'll find yourself inside a living postcard surrounded by timber-framed houses with colourful façades, flowing canals, and cobblestone streets.
    • Try some of Alsace’s renowned wines in the vineyards and tasting cellars of the famous Route des Vins. Sylvaner, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling are among the best white wines in France.
    • Fill your basket with local delicacies: foie gras that’s every bit as good as its South-Western counterpart, famous Munster cheese (be sure to have it vacuum packed!), irresistible kouglof, Alsace's traditional spice bread, and so much more.
    • Get rolling! Visit Mulhouse's two places of mechanical worship: the Cité du Train, the largest railway museum in Europe, and the Cité de l’Automobile, the largest in the world with 400 cars in its collection.
    • Hear Hosanna, the oldest bell in Münster, the Freiburg Cathedral. For more than 8 centuries it has hung in the church's spectacular tower and rings out every Thursday evening as well as Fridays at 11 am.
    • While visiting the cathedral, take time to wander around the market which occupies the square every morning. There you can taste the “lange rote”, a long sausage without casing that’s grilled and then placed between two tiny slices of bread. It’s a local treasure and a pure delight!

But you don't need an event, even one as prestigious as those above, to appreciate the charms of Basel and its neighbours. You can visit and enjoy this multicultural region all year round.
