Brush up on flights to Basel

If you’re looking for your next multicultural fix, the sophisticated Swiss city of Basel should be top of your list. Flit between frontiers in this beautiful Gothic city on the Rhine, which borders both the French region of Alsace and Germany’s Black Forest. Once your flight touches down at EuroAirport Basel Mulhouse Freiburg, head straight for the Old Town, whose cobbled streets and medieval buildings are marked by the splendid Spalentor gate on one side and the Rhine on the other. On most mornings you’ll find a bustling flower and food market underway within the courtyard of the red-brick Rathaus (city hall) on the city’s Marktplatz.

Bag a bargain with cheap flights to Basel

Although you’ll fall for this place at any time of year, winter and spring are the best times to book cheap flights to Basel. Prices can spike in February to coincide with the city’s famous Fasnacht carnival, which takes place over three days during the week following Ash Wednesday – it’s a feast of over-the-top reverie and kooky costumes. If you can, catch the opening parade, Morgestraich, at 4 a.m. on Monday, lit purely by the light of the masked paraders’ lanterns. If you’re looking to land cheap tickets to Basel, make sure you book at least six weeks in advance.

How do I fly to Basel from the UK?

Zipping over to Basel is hassle-free, with direct flights available from all London airports – take your pick from carriers such as easyJet, Ryanair or British Airways. easyJet also operates services from Manchester, Edinburgh and Bristol. The flight time from London is approximately an hour and a half, while flights from Edinburgh take just over two hours. Don’t forget to move your watch an hour forward once you land.

Getting from Basel Airport to the city centre

As airports go, the EuroAirport is practically in Basel’s pocket at just over three miles northwest of the city centre. The Line 50 bus departs from outside the terminal and will take you to the main train station in around 20 minutes. The Line 2 tram also connects the airport with the train station. Buses leave about every 10 minutes, but if you simply can’t wait to kick off your Swiss trip, a taxi trip into the centre should cost you no more than 50 Swiss Francs.

Checking out Basel’s cultural curiosities

As the cultural capital of Switzerland, Basel will dazzle you with its range of art museums, exhibitions and theatres – indeed, with almost 40 museums within the city limits, it may take several visits to unearth all its secrets. Art and culture buffs shouldn’t miss the Fondation Beyeler, which houses the staggering collection of art connoisseur Ernst Beyeler in a museum designed by architect Renzo Piano, the mastermind behind Paris’ Centre Georges Pompidou. Children will be entranced by the whirring and splashing of Jean Tinguely’s ever-moving Carnival Fountain, or Fasnachtsbrunnen, at Theaterplatz. And while you’re perfectly placed on the Swiss-French border, make sure to tuck into the cheesy goodness of a dual-national treasure – fondue!
