Basel styles itself as the 'Christmas City', with pretty illuminations, a seasonal avenue of tall pine trees and a large Christmas Market offering beautiful items to decorate your home. Many museums and theatres even have special Christmas performances and exhibitions.
Our 4 day itinerary includes a day trip to Bern, whose Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You'll have the whole day to explore the history and certainly enjoy a good lunch in this wonderful city.
