Zurich is a picturesque Swiss town, surrounded by towering mountains and crisp blue waters, located in northern Switzerland. It’s the largest town in the country and their official language is German. Zurich is known for its beautiful landscape, galleries, and for being a banking capital. My husband, Paul, and I spent a lovely fall day exploring Zurich’s old city highlights.
I was intrigued by Basel when I found out it borders three countries. That’s right. Three. Switzerland, France, and Germany. My husband and I wanted to explore Basel for a night, before heading on to Zurich, and then back home to the States. We rode the train from Lucerne to Basel (I love to travel by train). On the day we arrived, it was very gray and gloomy. It rained on and off, but we had a great time wandering the streets of Basel.
