Basel lies in the north-west corner of Switzerland, and shares borders with Germany and France. This location makes it a very international place. Since the time of its emergence, Basel has always been a meeting point for people living in Europe. Nowadays Basel works closely together with its neighbour countries in such areas as culture, education and transportation.
Basel is one of the oldest cities in Switzerland. It is renowned for humanist heritage - the first country's university was opened in Basel in 1460. Many well-known scholars studied there, for example Erasmus of Rotterdam. These achievements made Basel a city of academic excellence and welcoming culture. As a result, today the biggest part of the city's economy is related to scientific industries (chemistry and pharmaceutics) and tourism.
Basel is a European cultural centre. There are nearly 40 museums and galleries. Many of them are well known all over the world, for example Kunstmuseum, Fondation Beyeler, Schaulager, Kunsthalle Basel and Jean Tinguely Museum. Basel is also famous for ArtBasel, the world's leading contemporary art fair.
