Nestling in the heart of Europe where Switzerland, Germany and France meet, Basel is a pocket‑sized metropolis that combines proverbial Swiss quality with a multicultural population. As the third biggest city in Switzerland it is the headquarters of Novartis as well as Hoffmann‑La Roche and is one of the most prominent life sciences clusters in the world. A perfect contrast to the contemporary architecture of these companies is the historic architecture of the Old Town of Basel, dating back to the 13th century, nestled along the river Rhine. Moreover, the city is rightly referred to as the cultural capital of Switzerland where art is not only omnipresent while strolling around, but is also evident in the numerous museums which guarantee inspiring museum‑based trips of the finest calibre. Its central location, first‑class transport connections and infrastructure as well as the compactness of the city make Basel one of the most important exhibition and congress destinations in Europe. All this, combined with a huge range of leisure activities and cultural events, attracts hundreds of thousands of guests each year.
