My niece and I took a river cruise from Basel to Amsterdam a few years back. We stayed a few days in Basel beforehand, and I was super impressed with this great town. There was so much to see and do, from the Saturday food market to the wonderful architecture. We even rode the local train on every imaginable route. A two day pass on the trains was included in the price of our hotel stay.

If you want to travel to Basel and stay in a great hotel, check out the Grand Hotel les Trois Rois. I didn't stay there but it is breathtakingly beautiful. If you would like more info on this hotel, click here.
