Any travel suggestions for the weekend (leaving from Basel)?

Hi,

I'm working in Basel (and living just over the French border) and I thought this weekend if I can't figure out what else to do perhaps I should go and visit somewhere! I am considering Bern and Luzern at the moment, but other suggestions of nice and easily-reachable places are welcome (cheap is good, too!)

I also have the U-ABO monthly pass thing so if someone knows of somewhere good nearby that I could travel to for free with that pass, I'd be happy to hear about it :-)

How about visiting one of the more stranger place near your?

Edit: The strange part, not mentioned in the Wikipedia article, is the Crypt.

I actually went to Strasbourg on the weekend, it was lovely! Colmar is definitely on the list for a weekend I feel like a shorter journey :-) (living in France it is actually even closer than it would be from Basel)
