Picturesque Jura landscape
Baselland is rich in scenic beauties, impressive nature and cultural treasures. Whether in the footsteps of the Romans, during a boat trip on the Rhine or on hikes in the Jura, there is much to discover in the Basel region. Baselland in the north-west of Switzerland and just outside the city of Basel borders directly on neighbouring Germany and France and is famous for its nearby Jura landscape with its almost untouched nature. This is why the Basel area with its gentle, wooded hills is particularly appreciated by bike and hiking enthusiasts.
Between the lovely hills
Numerous castles and palaces line the more than 1000 km of hiking trails in the region. A visit to Liestal, the capital of the Baselbiet, with its picturesque old town is also worthwhile. Anyone strolling through Dornach will be surprised by the unique buildings, such as the reinforced concrete building of the Second Goetheanum, the centre of the globally active General Anthroposophical Society.
A wide choice
Canton Baselland is rich in cultural treasures and is committed to the culture of the region. Here you literally encounter art every step of the way, whether you are strolling through the villages or visiting one of the countless museums.

Far more opens a short drive into the green, through varied, picturesque areas. The neighbouring cantons form a huge local recreation area with limitless possibilities for leisure activities.
