I had visited Switzerland many times, but it was my first time in Basel. Awesome place. At the airport they ask you: "Switzerland or France?". The left door goes to France and the right door goes to Switzerland. Once out the first visibile hill is Germany. So awesome. The city (or rather a town) is really petite and full of history. On day one I walked on the oldest bridge crossing the Rhine river. I had an amazing buffalo steak in a traditional restaurant. Then back to the middle of the city drinking coffee. Expensive indeed, but super classy.
The Museum of Natural History was one of the highlights. I would have not imagined to find so many interesting stuff in such as small city. I will let the pictures speak more than my words.
