Basel : Michelin's recommendations
Basel, Switzerland's third largest city in terms of population, is a real cultural heavyweight. Its 30 museums, its university, which is Switzerland's oldest, and its pronounced taste for contemporary art and design make it a fashionable, dynamic city, but one that remains mindful of its rich heritage and status. The city owes its wealth to its port, banks and powerful chemical and pharmaceutical companies.
