Reformation in Basel

Basel Highlights


A turning point with serious consequences: the Reformation had a lasting impact that went far beyond religious life, affecting politics, the economy and society as well. Our tour will take you back to these turbulent times and to the places where Erasmus of Rotterdam worked, who published the New Testament in the original language. We will also show you the sites of the long struggle over the Reformation which came to a head in February 1529 and ended with a victory for the reformers.
