Close to the Spalentor, it is one of the oldest gardens of its kind in the entire German-speaking area. A multi-lingual audio tour guides you around the extensive collection of plants on display. You will not only have the chance to see the famous collections of cacti and orchids, the tropical house also whisks you away to the magical world of the rainforest.
In the midst of the Alsace region, close to the château du Haut-Kœnigsburg and in the heart of the wine-growing region, the old walls of the Burg Kintzheim tower above the fir trees below. Above the ancient, moss-covered walls large, dark figures swoop and circle in the air. Amongst the participants in this impressive aerial display are eagles, condors, vultures, falcons and owls. Visitors to the sanctuary can observe these creatures from distance in free flight, but also up close within the grounds of the sanctuary.
Around 200 Barbary macaques live free, without bars and cages, on 'la Montagne des Singes' - Monkey Mountain - set in 24 hectares of forest in the idyllic rolling hills of the Alsace. During your visit to our wondrous wildlife park you can observe these amazing animals eating, playing and frolicking in the forest. Specially prepared popcorn is available at the park entrance for feeding to the monkeys - a highlight for the whole family!

The best way to discover Basel city centre is on one of the guided walking tours offered by Basel Tourismus. Each of these tours show the city and its development from a slightly different perspective. The walking tours lead you through the streets of the Old Town to the most important museums and through the prettiest piazzas. All five walking tours begin and end at Marktplatz. The concept is remarkably simple: each of the tours has been named after a world-famous son or daughter of the city. Simply follow the signs displaying the head of that person after whom the tour has been named. Simple!
