would have to be one of the most streamlined service systems in the world! Every train and bus seems to be unable to not leave right on the advertised time - so public transport runs well and reliably - and is clean with courteous staff!
This time i flew to Basel to move off to other parts around Switzerland but caught the bus into town to go see the Kunstmuseum as i knew it would be closed when i got back on Monday.
Good services with all the info you need to go where you need to go and at the Basel train station there are all the facilities such as Tourist Information Office to check plans and strategies, baggage storage and clean loos.
Its a nice walk down through the streets to the fine arts museum where theres an excellent collection of the 'greats' plus the current kandinsky exhibition
very elaborate and colourful rathaus and marketplace - near the river, also provides another look see
- Pros:all the facilities to aid the traveller are here, good services and pleasant people. Interesting enough architecture. Post office is open till 9pm!!buses to and from airport are frequent.
- Cons:Quite a long walk to the main square ie the marktplaz, but can at least see some interesting buildings and culture along the way
- In a nutshell:I liked it a lot! especially as a base to fly into and travel off to elsewhere.
After a night tour of the well regarded for its beauty, Rathaus Ive been back for the day tour! Yes its beautiful by day... more travel advice
Each city has its own look - but for an architecture and design lover one can see works of art and interest almost... more travel advice
