1. Re: Any tips

You are a bit early in the year. The famous basel carnival is taking place on the 6th - 8th March, this year.

Anyway. You can have a good time in Basel in February.

1. Don't take the taxi from the airport. It will cost you between 40 and 50 Swiss Francs (20 quid approx.) It's better to use the

airport bus to the railway station and tram nr. 2 to Mustermesse. From there it's a 150 yard's walk to Hotel Europe.

2. The weather will be cold, but mostly not freezing or snow. More or less as it is in L'pool.

3. For traditional continental food there is opposite your Hotel the "Restaurant Rheinfelderhof", but there is also a McDonalds not far away in direction to the Rhine. Try also the smallest brewery in Europe "Fischerstube" in the Rheingasse and its Ueli Beer. Then it's a short walk to the banks of the Rhine, where you can use the famous ferryboats to the other side of the rhine and visit the "Münster" (cathedral) as well as the historical center. Stroll down to Barfüsserplatz with lots of bars and restaurants as well as shopping opportunities.
