24 reviews
Visit three countries in one day—and discover some of Europe’s loveliest scenery—on this full-day, small-group tour from Colmar in France’s Alsace region. Depart in the morning via air-conditioned vehicle, and cross the border into Germany, where you’ll head to the lovely city of Freibug, famed for its medieval Old Town. Next, continue to Basel in Switzerland for a dose of old-meets-new beauty. Finally, head back to France to visit the centuries-old village of Eguisheim, famed for its half-timbered buildings and wine-region proximity.

A spacious area with a model of the Münster, river views, fountain, trees, a young atmosphere - there's a college along one side in a lovely old building.

It is probably the most cozy square in Basel. You can relax here after walk and try to catch atmosphere of Old Town. I would like to see it during Christmas.

There are 3 access routes to this historical place. You can climb from Schifflände, from Barfüsserplatz or walk from the Kunstmuseum to this wide place, surrounded by the Cathedral with its covered graveyards towards the Rhine and the houses built in medieval times to the West.

While we were there, there were some actors busy shooting a "game of thrones"-themed video. The Muenster fits in quite nicely with that theme, and I thoroughly enjoyed admiring the building.

When I visited in December, the area of the square adjacent to the side of the Munster was filled with the stalls of the Christmas Market and another part had small funfair rides for children but the central area in front of the church was left clear. It is a charming tree lined square with some interesting old buildings and a nice fountain. The Christmas Market was busy with the smell of sausages grilling and hot gluhwein wafting across the square. Walk up to the Munsterplatz through the Rheinsprung and Augustinergasse which are lined with lovely old houses and some palaces.
