Basel: Taste My Swiss City Self Guided Food Tour

1 review
On this self-guided food tour, sample the best of Basel’s food scene at establishments hand-picked by a local food expert. Start at the first restaurant whenever you like, though it's recommended to start early to get the most out of the tour. Visit five different sites, enjoy a drink or snack at each, and soak up the ambiance without the chatter of a guide. You call the shots on how long you spend at each place.

The museum is located in an old church and has many interesting dispalys on the story of the history of Basel and the surrounding area. The only gripe is that very little of the information is in English. Don't forget to use your Basel Card to get a reduction on the admission charge! The facade of the museum was partially hidden when I visited by the largest of the Christmas Markets in Basel - well worth a visit if you are there in December! Across the road from the museum is a busy tram stop where you can get to all the other parts of the city.

The museum is inside an old church and it is very well laid out. The story of Basle and the surrounding area is told very well. My only issue was that very little of the information was in English.

Nice, warm and well laid out museum. I got caught up with the exhibits in the main area and nearly forgot about those down the stairs. Liked that you could leave your bag and jacket in a locker leaving you free to wander round with tablet. Some of the exhibits are interactive as well. Lady at the reception desk was very helpful. Definitely worth a visit.

Nice exhibits, productive time to use if you want to taste a little bit of history. You will use an ipad tablet to document yourself and find more about the exhibits.
