Basel sits conveniently in the heart of Western Europe, just inside Switzerland on the border of France and Germany. Basel therefore is blessed with many influences, and boasts a rich culture and plenty of contrast. The city is a central hub of commerce and transport, although thanks to the Rhine splitting the centre in two, there are quaint ferryboats that carry passengers across town.
