Go to www.viamichelin.com.
Put in Switserland, your hotel address, Basel, then click Michelin Guide restaurants.
You'll find them on a map (zoom in or out if you like), complete with descriptions and price range.

Travel Tips for Basel

Drielanderick

by Wallace&Murron

The symbolic and actual meeting point of Switzerland, Germany, and France; this is not to be missed. It is a tram-ride from the city centre, and then a ten minute walk by train tracks and the harbour side; but is worth it.

The Laellekoenig (Tongue King)

by Myndo

Laelle (lälle) is an old word for tongue.
The Tongue-King is a stone face showing its tongue to the Small Basel.
You can find it at the Middle Bridge (Mittlere Brücke).

It was hanging on the big doorway at the bigger Basel end of the bridge.
The original was made of copper with a crown and had a clockwork in it, so it would roll its eyes and show the red tongue to the other side of the Rhine.
That original one can still be found in the Historical Museum in Basel. Now we have a stone face.

Now why would someone hang something like that up?
Big Basel and Small Basel were concurring in the old times. When the smaller Basel "invented" the Vogel Gryff and its festival, that was bigger Basels answer...

You can find that face at the facade of the house at Schifflaende 1. But also in othe places.

Dante Schuggi (Aunt Shuggi)

by Myndo

This is not a Relative but its the name of the Basler for their oldest Tram that is still touring the rails of Basel. A real Oldtimer and everyone knows it.
It was built 1914.

You can't find the old Aunt Schuggi on the rails everyday, but you may be lucky.

The tram is today touring groups around Basel.
Have a seat on the wooden places, watch out the windows (with curtains, of course, we travel in stile) and hold your glas of wine when the old aunt makes a sharper curve (which she still can).

The Dante Shuggi tours on Fridays. The drive includes a Meal. You will have to pay for the Drinks. Costs between 30-40SFr.)
It can be booked at the Restaurant "Storchen" on the Schifflände. Phone Number: 061/261 29 29

The second way to get on Dante Schuggi is to rent it for your wedding or else. Then you can also have an added wagon with the musicians on it (see picture). (Costs from 660.- SFR per hour)

This is something I definitely have to do some day.

St. Johann Vorstadt

by german_eagle

St. Johann Vorstadt is another district of Basel worth to see. It is sort of the pendant to St. Alban, albeit not as picturesque and of totally different ambience.

St. Johann also has a city gate, one of the three remaining. This one was built 1370-80 and looks pretty similar to St. Alban city gate IMO. Other architectural delights are the old townhouses along the street with the same name as the district. On a walk along St.-Johanns-Vorstadt you'll pass the Baroque Reinacher Hof and Erlacher Hof, the "lazy maid fountain", classicistic Formenter Hof etc.

If you have some more time you might consider a walk through St. Johann park to the dock of the cruise ships or a visit of the Anatomic museum (Pestalozzistr.).

Trams aka streetcars

1. Tram number 8 at Barfüsserplatz
2. Tram number 11 at the main station Basel SBB
3. Tram number 10 by the theater

In the 1950s the automobile lobbies mounted a huge and quite bitter campaign intended to ban the tram lines from Basel, so they wouldn't get in the way of cars. In 1955 there was a referendum in which a majority of the voters fortunately agreed to retain the trams and keep on financing them, so Basel was spared the fate of being a tram-free city.

Eleven tram lines still exist today in Basel. Typically a tram comes on each line every seven and a half minutes, i.e. eight trams per hour.

The large green tram in the first photo belongs to the BVB, which is the public transport company that is wholly owned by the Canton Basel-Stadt (Basel City). This line, number 8, is currently being extended across the border into Germany, so that this will be an international tram line starting in 2012.

The smaller yellow trams in the second and third photos belong to the Baselland Transport AG (BLT), which as the name implies is the transport organization of the Canton Basel-Land.
