A Day In… Basle (Basic Basel)

Feb 4th, 2011 | By

For a start a day isn’t going to be enough. The city demands a short break. It’s a fairly widespread city so unless you’re a regular walker this is one for having a car or buying day passes on the buses and trams. So I am going to concentrate on one particular area south of the river.
I first came here about thirty five years ago and, to be honest I remember very little about it other than drinking hot chocolate and going to the zoo so I came to it with no preconceptions.
