North-West Switzerland borders to France and Germany. For many travelers, North-West Switzerland is where they enter the country. If you come from Paris or Germany, Basel will mostly be the first Swiss town you'll reach. For plane travelers, the EuroAirport just across the border in France can be the point of entry.

Why would you visit North-West Switzerland?
