Situated where the Swiss, German, and French borders meet, Basel is considered the hub of Dreilandereck, this "three countries corner." Its location makes Basel a center of culture and history, brimming with important theaters and museums.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Zoo Basel and Naturhistorisches Museum Basel. Venture out of the city with trips to Bern (Einstein House (Einsteinhaus), UNESCO-Altstadt von Bern, & more), Kriens (St Gallus Catholic Church & Schachmuseum) and Mt Pilatus (in Lucerne). On the 29th (Wed), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Brunni-Bahnen Engelberg AG. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Basel Minster, wander the streets of Basel's Old Town, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and examine the collection at Jean Tinguely Museum.

To find reviews, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Basel trip planner.

If you are flying in from Egypt, the closest major airports are Zürich Airport, Basel Mulhouse Freiburg and Bern Belp Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 6°C, and evening lows to 0°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
