Cultural Capital of Switzerland
Jacob Park stadium, also called Joggeli - which has FC Basel as its resident team - is the largest football stadium in Switzerland. It hosts a large shopping centre, ideal for a spot of shopping before exploring the old town. A few minutes by public transport (by tram with line 14 or bus line 37) are enough to reach your destination. The streets of the old town reveal a contrasting architecture between half-timber framed houses and contemporary constructions designed by renowned architects. Take a moment to contemplate the red sandstone facades of the City Hall and of the Basel Minster Cathedral and enjoy a quiet stop along the Rhine among the trees of Solitude Park.
