Top Local Tips for Basel

Blindekuh, an awesome restaurant A great dining experience as long as you're not afraid of the dark. You enter a space thats not too fancy where you look at a menu. You are then lead back into a completely dark dining room and seated. The food was good and the evening was very memorable. The restaurant is also in Zurich I believe.

What we should learn from Basel The hotels and most hostels give their guests travel passes which may be used on the trams throughout the city. I stayed within walking distance of the Rhine, near the old bridge off of Claraplatz. The trams are quiet and stop just about everywhere. If you miss one, another comes along within a few minutes. I never even had anyone want to check to see if I had a pass, I just got on and off where ever I wanted. There are cars, but not nearly what we have here, so the problem with congestion is nonexistant. I was very impressed, they were clean, well lighted and being a single woman there, I never felt threatened when having to go out at night. There was very little problem with language, most all speak some English, and the youth there were especially eager to speak English with an outsider. The beautiful buildings and the view from the bridge was awsome.Lots of churches to marvel at in their architecture. If you want to see a variety of ancient doorknobs, they are everywhere!
