The capital of Switzerland, Basel, is also the country's smallest canton. There is a danger of confusion here, because on the one hand there is the canton of Basel-Stadt and the canton of Baselland, which includes the area surrounding the metropolitan region. Basel Stadt is 37 m2 in size, has 170,000 inhabitants and is located in the so-called border triangle - Switzerland, Germany and France. Despite its size, this gives Basel a strong international flair. Swiss German is spoken first, but you can also easily communicate here with High German, French and English. The region has been settled since the Stone Age, and the Romans were also here. In 1648, the independence of the Swiss Confederation from the German Empire was recognised.
Many people quickly think of pharmaceuticals when they think of Basel; big names like Novartis and Hoffmann-La Roche are represented here. However, the city has a lot to offer visitors, especially culturally, with its 40 or so museums.
