If you want to discover the city's most important tourist attractions, a circular tour by bike is the ideal option. The best starting point for a cycle tour is Basel's Marktplatz, which is right next to the hotel. You can then ride past Basel Minster, the city's landmark, and through the picturesque district of St. Alban out to the old city wall. After that, it's on to Birsfelden Lock and Switzerland's tallest skyscraper, the Roche Tower. Another architectural highlight is the border triangle building, which in the warm summer months features its own sand oasis where you can linger for a while. The cycle tour through Basel continues via the idyllic St. Johann Park before returning to Basel's Marktplatz.
Good to know: Guided cycle tours through the city are available under the name "Basel by bike". Tours last around two and a half hours.
