Basel is pretty low key for a major art, financial and pharmaceutical city, low rise and much of it is suburban like a large industrial park with smoking chimneys in the distance and the headquarters of Roche right near the centre of town.  I got a better sense of it on day two, having entirely missed the historic centre which is extensive and well preserved.   It’s a burgher town, grown rich on the banks of the Rhine with old houses and quiet streets:-
