Basel, Switzerland

Basel is Switzerland's third most populous city with about 166,000 inhabitants. It is located where
the Swiss, French and German borders meet. Basel also has suburbs in France and Germany,
with 830,000 inhabitants in the tri-national urban agglomeration. Basel is Switzerland's
second-largest metropolitan area. Located in northwest Switzerland on the river Rhine, Basel
functions as a major centre for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry. The Basel region,
culturally extending into German Baden-Wurttemberg and French Alsace, reflects the heritage
of its three states in the modern Latin name: Regio TriRhena. Basel is mainly German-speaking.
