One of Europe’s leading art hubs, and one of the locations of the world-famous Art Basel show, Basel is Switzerland’s third-largest city. (Although it has plenty of other claims to fame, including being the birthplace of Roger Federer.) Sports aside, Basel is also a cultural powerhouse. Private galleries sit alongside the unmatched collections of the Basel Museum of Ancient Art, the Kunstmuseum (Museum of Fine Arts) and Museum Tinguely, while the Historisches Museum Basel examines Basel’s role as a meeting point between Swiss, German and French influences. For families, there’s the Spielzeug Welten Museum Basel, a collection of 6000 toys and dolls.
