Why visit Basel?

Switzerland's northwest Rhine River city of Basel is located near its borders with Germany and France. The red sandstone Town Hall from the 16th century dominates Marktplatz, the hub of the town's medieval old town. Its Gothic cathedral from the 12th century overlooks the city and houses the tomb of Erasmus, a Dutch scholar, who lived in the 16th century. Some of Erasmus's writings are kept at the city's university.
