Basel [1] and Aargau are regions in Switzerland.


Other destinations[edit]


Baseldytsch, an Alemannic dialect, is the main language of the region around Basel. German is the official language, though, and nearly everyone speaks it.

Because the border to France is only a few kilometers away, most people also understand French. It is also no problem to find somebody that understands English.


Switzerland is known for five official languages. You will want to be fluent in French, Italian, and English. Also, some German dialects might be spoken among the Swiss, who have no official language of their own. You will think it sounds mostly like French, although the dialect is combined European languages.

Get in[edit]
