Re: Zurich vs. Basel... [which do you recommend?]

Seriously, all I know of Zürich is the airport really and the traffic getting to and from.
Same here in the opposite direction: Basel is for me merely a nuisance on the way to Germany.


I personally find Zurich not as urban as the average Zürcher claims it to be: It takes me a ten minute walk to the nearest forest where I could hike for hours and within five minutes by car or motorbike I am far enough out of the "city" to see the first cows on a field... so to the original poster: Take all the comments on the "big city" really only as relative compared to Basel... not on a global scale.
