Home to 40 museums, the city of culture for connoisseurs has the highest concentration of museums in the country. Basel also has a beautiful Old Town, modern architecture, and the Rhine – an inviting spot to rest a while.
Central city on the Rhine River
While not the only hotel in Basel, this is the best choice for your stay.
Located at the crossroads of three countries, the Grand Hotel Les Trois Rois – “The Three Kings” – lives up to its royal reputation. Since 1681, notables that include Napoleon Bonaparte and Theodor Herzl have stayed in its lavish accommodations, which feature fine brocade and bold hues, along with antiques and original artworks. The views over the Rhine and Basel’s Old Town are equally dramatic. Peter Knogl’s French haute cuisine, enriched with Mediterranean and Asian influences, has garnered three Michelin stars for the Cheval Blanc; other dining choices include the French/Swiss Brasserie.
