Basel is one of Switzerland’s underrated cultural treasures. While Zurich and Geneva get all the attention, Basel’s well-preserved medieval city center, home to a world-renowned art museum and a lively nightlife, is well worth a visit. The city is also a convenient base for exploring the surrounding area, from the snow-capped peaks of the Swiss Alps to the vineyards of the Alsace region in France.

Basel is a great little city to visit. It is one of the most culturally divers places in Switzerland, and it's known for "Art Basel" (the original, not the one in Miami). Basel is small enough to see it on a quick visit, but still offers something for everyone.
