With booking this excursion from Zurich to Basel and Freiburg im Breisgau, you are going to discover the two very attractive old towns in one day!
Staring the full-day trip right from your accommodation in Zurich, you will travel to Basel, also known as the “Cultural Capital” of Switzerland. Basel is lying on the banks of Rhine River, not far from French and German borders. It is the third largest city in Switzerland after Zurich and Geneva. Thanks to its advantageous disposition on the map, Basel is one of the most culturally rich cities in the world. It unites French fashion and romance, German ballet and music, Swiss high class and aristocracy. Therefore, a visitor to this city will never fail to be impressed.
Switzerland-tour is here to advise you on the places to visit in Basel, which has many points of interests to offer in order to keep you entertained. In Basel, you will have a sightseeing foot walk in the Old Town. This medieval town is not large, thus, very atmospheric with its cobblestone streets, historic churches, beautiful brick houses and brightly colored fountains. The buildings dating back to 15th century are the perfect addition to the prestigious present-day architecture, as they are creating a powerful yet well-matching cityscape.
The City Hall (Rathaus) is the seat of the Basel government. It is located right in the middle of the Old Town and amazes the travelers by its red sandstone facades, the unique tower and lively paintings. Inside is representing chambers of the Parliament and Government Council, considered as one of the must-see milestones in Basel.
Next, hop back into the car and continue the way to Freiburg im Breisgau – the heart of fairytale-like Black Forest. As a green city with a sunny disposition, Freiburg has become a global benchmark for eco-friendly living. Except for trams and bicycles, the city center is traffic-free.
Here you can stroll around the charming old town to learn the history and culture of the city. Despite the destructive bombing of World War II, the city keeps hold of several historic buildings worthy of attention. This includes the St. Martin Church and the Town Hall based in the 16th century. You will surely be fascinated by the gothic cathedral Freiburg Minster with its stained glass windows, which has been inspired by the bizarre Basel Minster.
Afterwards, you can visit a local buzzy restaurant to enjoy regional dishes along with a glass of wine or German beer. Your excursion will end and the expert driver-guide will give you a comfortable ride back to the starting point in Zurich, leaving you impressed by the Swiss and German cultures!
