The region of Basel, in the Northwest of Switzerland and at the gates of the city of Basel, borders Germany and France and is well known for the nearby Jura landscape with its nearly pristine nature. For this reason the Basel region with its gently rolling, forested hills, is especially cherished by bikers and hikers. In Arlesheim, not far from the city of Basel, one can view Switzerland’s only cathedral. Numerous fortresses and castles line over 1000 kilometers of hiking trails in the region. Liestal, the main town in the Basel region is worth visiting given its picturesque old town. Whoever walks through Dornach is surprised by its unique architecture.
