    Car hire reviews in Basel

    Car Hire Basel ReviewsLocated at the northern tip of Switzerland, very close to both the French and German borders, Basel is widely recognised as one of the main cultural centres in central Europe. There's much to see in this beautiful city on the Rhine, particularly in and around the Old Town which is bursting with tourist attractions, notably Basel Minster, Barfüsserkirche, City Hall, Museum der Kulturen and Tinguely Fountain. Always a favourite with the kids is the Spielzeug Welten Museum (Toy Museum) featuring an amzing collection of over six thousand toys, including dolls, stuffed animals, doll's houses, shop models and carousels. Another must is Basel's Museum of Antiquities and the Ludwig collection displaying Egyptian, Greek, Italian, Etruscan and Roman works of art covering antiquity from 4000 BC to 6 AD. You'll also want to spend some time exploring the Spalentor, a 14th-century fortified gate marking the end of the Old Town. The adjacent Peterskirche (St Peter's Church) retains many of its original 14th-century features, while the university close by has a lovely botanical garden founded in the 16th century, one of the oldest in the world. The city is also the perfect base from which to discover the 140 square-kilometre Naturpark Thal in the heart of the Solothurn Jura mountain range, or why not cross the frontier into France or Germany for an exciting two-destination itinerary with your car hire in Basel.
