Switzerland may be most famous for its snowy mountain peaks, high finance, chocolate and cheese, but the BScene Basel Clubfestival is rapidly winning more and more fans worldwide. For the past 16th years Switzerland's largest club festival, held in March this year, has delighted music and dance fans alike. With a colourful mix of music styles ranging from Jazz to Hip Hop, electro to house, rock and pop to reggae and world music, the club festival is held over two days every spring.

For a stroll through the park there's no finer place than St. Albantor (St. Alban Gate), which is a reminder of the city's extensive fortifications that once circled Basel to protect the rich city from marauders. It is still possible to see the heavy wooden posts that were lowered in times of danger to shut in the citizens and keep the bandits out.
