Basel, Switzerland - City of Cultural Nirvana
Cheese and chocolate. Yes, they're two of Switzerland's tastiest exports. But what really stands out about Basel - which, with 170,000 inhabitants, is Switzerland's third largest city after Zurich and Geneva - is the vibrancy of its art and cultural scenes. Basel, which borders France and Germany, has the most museums (almost 40) of any Swiss destination, and they saturate every street - along with shops, hotels, restaurants and bars that scream luxury and decadence. All in all, the city's offers the perfect formula for the perfect weekend away.

Here's our guide to Basel's best cultural attractions along with our top restaurant and hotel recommendations in five easy steps...

Our first visit was to the Kunstmuseum Basel with its vast collection of historic and modern art. The main building was erected in 1931 and an extension added in April this year; the latter was designed by the renowned Basel-based architecture firm Christ & Gantenbein. We visited a provoking exhibition called Sculpture On The Move 1946-2016, and this gobsmacking building is certainly the place for it; it's on until 18 September. If you're interested in the evolution of sculpture from World War 11 to the present, and are a fan of the likes of Alberto Giacometti to Koons, this is the exhibit for you.
