Description

By booking this unique journey, you will be able to visit two neighboring countries in a single trip.

Switzerland-Tour offers this fabulous, private discovery tour to Swiss Basel and Colmar in France.

Your driver-guide will take you from your hotel or other convenient destination to begin your journey direct to the "Cultural Capital" of Switzerland - Basel City.

Upon arrival, you will embark on a walking tour to get acquainted with the real cultural part of this incredible city. Stroll to the majestic Congress Hall and the Old Town (Altstadt) of Basel, which offers amazing sights including the beautiful cobblestone streets and intricate artificial fountains.

Basel’s Town Hall (Rathaus), a red sandstone building with colorful paintings, is situated in the town center. It’s the perfect photo opportunity before you leave to discover one of the fantastic museums. You can take a look around the Tinguely Museum, home to the works of the innovative Jean Tinguely or the Basel Art Museum (Kunstmuseum), where you explore the transformation of art over the time. There are also 40 other internationally known museums available based on your tastes.

However, if museums aren’t up your street, then you could opt to take a boat trip on the sparkling Rhine River through the most charming elements of this magnificent city.

Basel is famous for its fine chocolates and sweets, especially “Basler Leckerli Biscuit.” You’ll have the chance to taste some delicious samples when you proceed on to the French area of Colmar.

This small city showcases the lifestyle of the whole Alsace Region. In each corner, there are eye-catching architectures and beautiful sights to admire including the splendid Saint Martin Church, a Roman Catholic Church with Gothic architectural design, also known as a collegiate church.

You will also be amazed by the half-timbered houses dating back to the 16th century and will have the opportunity to visit Adolf house, considered the oldest one in Colmar and Pfister house, the design of this house dates back to the Middle Ages with facade paintings displaying the emperors of the 16th century.

Little Venice “La Petite Venise” is also on the must-see destinations list while visiting Colmar. Its name is owed to the style of the lined-up houses on each side of La Lauch River, which reminds us of the beautiful city of romance - Venice.

In the evening, you will be amazed by the originality of the lighting system of this city while watching it glow before your comfortable transfer in a luxury vehicle back to your meeting point in Zurich.
