Beautiful city

I was in Lugano, then I moved to Basel...
Lugano is so beautiful that I did not want to leave it.
But now, I love Basel.
The city is nearly located on the 3 countries : Switzerland, France and Germany.
These countries share the same airport (Mulhouse) .

Here people enjoy the old city and the river. They come to the river like French come to the Riviera : swimming, picnic, walking, biking.
Basel is a city for bikers. They know how to take time to walk, bike, live and love.
The place is nice and quiet.
Many concerts and events in summer.
Basel is a great place to visit and to stay, mostly if you are with your friend !

    I visited Basel while I lived in Geneva (we called it "Bale"), and remember best the wonderful art that the town is famous for, especially the Jean Tinguely museum. I have been "homesick" for Switzerland since I left!

    Hi Tom! " I enjoy reading about these out-of-the way places in your country. They're all different, but each is interesting." Regards from Slovenia.
