What to do in Basel and around it?

Jump to last reply

DH and I will be travelling to Basel for a week. The first 3-3.5 days we will be busy at a conference but should have enough free time in between commitments to see Basel. The remaining 3-4 days are free to explore the surroundings. We are flying in and out of Zurich and the tickets are purchased already. We currently have all hotel days booked in Basel but may be able to change the last 3-4 nights if it's more convenient. That said, we'd rather not change it. We plan to visit Zurich and Lucerne. Anything else we can do that would be fun? We have already been to Geneva, Montreaux, Lausanne, Zermatt and Lugano on a previous trip. I would like to do Bernese Oberland and the Glacier or Bernina Express but that should be another trip with more time. For this one, we would like to stay close to Zurich due to limited time and have quality experience in the area. We do various activities on our trips, as long as it's fun. We do not plan to rent a car and will be using trains instead. Thank you very much.
