I will be arriving in Basel train station around 12 noon on a Sunday the 15 September. I will have to make it to my hotel which is the Courtyard Marriott in Pratteln. From there I would like to go into the city center and spend the rest of the day just enjoying the sights. What would be the best way to do this? I am assuming the tram system could take me to where I need to go. What tram would be the one that I should be looking for? Once into the city center I would also like to go to a restaurant that would have some outdoor seating where we could have a beer and watch the world go by. Any suggestions? Would also like to climb to the top of the cathedral and be able to see three countries at once. Will there be enough time to do all of this? Should I purchase a one day tram pass? Wish I had more time, but we have to take the train to Murren the following day.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
