“I love the combination of history and people from all over the world that live in Switzerland. Walking down the street, you hear many different languages and see the rich and extensive history of Basel everywhere you look – Mittlere Brücke (the middle bridge) in the city center, opened in 1226! My favorite place to visit is Fondation Beyeler because its exhibitions, architecture, and grounds are extraordinary. Located a bit outside of Basel, the museum is an idyllic place to spend an afternoon.”
