Touring Basel, Switzerland, Part 2

Last month I traveled to Basel, Switzerland, a European city first founded during the Roman Empire and still boasting beautiful buildings constructed more than 1,000 years agos. In Touring Basel, Switzerland, Part 1, I explored the city's historic downtown, which is a mix of neo-Gothic cathedrals, knit graffiti, ancient bridges, and Richard Serra sculptures. In Part 2, we share the fun to be had in and around the Rhine and travel outside the city to the Vitra campus and the Laufen bathrooms factory.

One excursion that Dwell friend Luc Meier of Swissnex San Francisco highly recommended was climbing up the Münster cathedral. The climb cost four Swiss francs (a little over $4.30 US with current conversions), which let me make my way up steep, winding stairwells to three observation decks. The views were unbelievable.
