The third biggest city in Switzerland, Basel, is situated in the northeastern part of the country on the river Rhine and is known as the city of museums as well as having the oldest university. The old market, abundantly designed Red sandstone town hall and beautiful churches glorify the beauty of the old town, adding to the charm of old architecture of the city. Basel is home to the worldwide recognised Basel Art Museum, a tribute to iron sculptor Jean Tinguely. It is hardly surprising that Basel is considered as Switzerland's cultural capital.
