The city owes its cosmopolitan flair, commercial power and pioneering spirit to this unique location. It’s not just Basel residents but many new citizens and tourists who appreciate Basel’s high quality of life. Basel is a vibrant arts and cultural metropolis. No other European city offers a comparable concentration of high-quality museums.
