This refined city is a stop on the fabulous Switzerland Meetings Trophy tour, a rally/competition among teams of meeting planners from across the globe, hosted by the Switzerland Convention & Incentive Bureau.
Basel is easy to like, with museums, smart shops, delicious food and the Rhine River flowing through its heart. The inviting 224-room Hyperion Hotel is a great base from which to explore group-friendly sites such as Zur Mägd, serving peppery, delicious pasta in its lovely garden.
Here, too, are the impressive Congress Center Basel, Switzerland's largest conference facility; and the Kunsthalle and Campari bar, a sprawling indoor/outdoor venue. For highlights about other cities on the tour, visit northstar meetingsgroup.com/trophy.
