REposting for assistance

Jump to last reply

I had posted last year about a pending trip to Switzerland, and that trip was cancelled at the last minute. Another opportunity to travel to Switzerland is on the horizon. This time to Basel.
I have no experience with travel to Europe so I am already a bit intimidated, and the meeting is in February so I am concerned about making the best of my wardrobe to avoid the need for extra luggage or bulky clothing. (I live in "The South" so I don't own heavy winter clothing).
We will arrive and leave from Basel by air. We have 3 days for exploration around the meeting, and then I'll have 3 half-days on my own in the town during the meeting.
I'd like to know if there cultural, historical, and/or architectural sites in the city which are accessible in the winter that I should make a point to visit during the half-days in town ( no skiing or winter sports); if it would be best to concentrate on seeing Switzerland with our additional days, or if day-trips from Basel to Germany and or France would be feasible and worthwhile use of our time; and what would be good souvenirs to bring home that are made in Basel, or the suggested towns from other countries if applicable. I have something in the way of handcrafts or "local art" in mind for ths souvenirs as opposed to something like watches or chocolate which are more of a commercial venture.
I only have 2 weeks to figure this out and the guidebook I bought for the other trip doesn't have anything on Basel! So any help is greatly appreciated.
