The canton of Basel-Landschaft (Basel-Countryside) has a wealth of beautiful scenery and cultural highlights. Classical music concerts, discovering Roman civilisation in Augusta Raurica, cruising on the Rhine and strolling through historic towns are just a few examples of this diversity.
Augusta Raurica
An ancient Roman colony, now an open-air museum, located on the south bank of the Rhine river, about 20 km east of Basel, near the villages of Augst and Kaiseraugst. Beautiful mosaics and the biggest Roman theater north of the Alps. Quite amazing!
The entire old city of Laufen, formerly belonging to Jura, is part of the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites and it's worth the visit. And as this little town is ideally situated between the Jura and the Rhine River, it's a good starting point to explore the north of Switzerland.
Capital of the canton of Basel-Landschaft (Basle Countryside), the little city of Liestal features an old town which is listed in the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites and is worth the visit.
