The best things to do while in Basel

Stadt Basel
Basel, that's the city where all the big chemical companies are based – and apart from that there's not much to see or do.

Far from it!  This city at the point where Switzerland, Germany and France all meet has a great deal to offer. And this was one of the main reasons why a global-scale conference was staged in Basel in December 2014 – the 21st OSCE Ministerial Council. Internationally acclaimed philosophers, including Erasmus von Rotterdam and Friedrich Nietzsche, centred their life around this city where the Rhine turns northward, greatly promoting Basel's merits.
