One day, take an excursion just across the border to Weil am Rhein, Germany to tour the Vitra Design Museum and factory, a remarkable collection of buildings by some of the world’s leading architects, including Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid and Tadao Ando. You might also like to opt to extend time in Basel to make a private excursion to the Chapel of Notre Dame du Haut, one of Le Corbusier's most renowned designs, in nearby Ronchamp, France.

Visit the Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and see interesting art and architecture such as the Kunstmuseum; the Zentrum Paul Klee, designed by Renzo Piano; and the Westside Shopping and Leisure Centre by Daniel Libeskind.
End in Geneva, which sits on the shore of beautiful Lake Geneva (Lac Leman). During private touring, see highlights such as the Museum of Art and History, the MAMCO (Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art) and the Quartier des Bains gallery district.
