About 15 months ago my friend and I had a very succesful 30 hour holiday in Marrakesh - sounds crazy but is perfectly doable if you can get the right flights.

Anyway, because it worked so well, we decided to do it again. We picked the best timed / cheapest flights we could find from Gatwick and have found ourselves heading to Basel in Switzerland. The only slight problem is that neither of us know the first thing about the place!

So, has anyone been who can tell me anything at all about the city or surrounding areas. I see that it’s right on a three way border with France and Germany, so is there anything across the borders worth seeing (bearing in mind we only have 30 hours).
