The view in front of the Barfüsserkirche extends across the white roofs of the pretty market stalls. The other stalls near the church spread the Christmas mood even further taking it down Kaufhausgasse right up to Freie Strasse.Details
In front of the historic cathedral is one of the most beautiful squares in Basel, which is most exquisitely decorated at Christmas time. Visitors love to come here and soak up the atmosphere as they marvel at the magnificent lights - the square has a real fairy tale feel to it.Details
In the Christmas fairy-tale forest on the Münsterplatz, children can make, pour and decorate candles, make torches, forge metal objects, decorate gingerbread, eat campfire bread and drink hot chocolate, ride on the kiddies’ train, bake cookies, pour tin, visit the star workshop, make Christmas floral decorations, have a go on the wheel of fortune, mint coins and much more besides.Details
Visitors can expect an enchanting winter wonderland of light, illumination, illusion and music. A fantastic world that appeals to all the senses: A unique sea of lights and a Christmas concert of terribly spectacular mythical creatures – stated and orchestrated by the conductor Yuki. Long and cosy Advent evenings for the Basel residents and their friends and colleagues. An interactive experience where you can dive into the fantastic world of Yuki and her friends every evening from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. Giuseppe Verdi’s “La Traviata” is performed in an unprecedented way. A crazy Christmas for the whole family.Details
Everyone who associates the Advent season with more than the hunt for bargains will feel particularly at home at this quarter Christmas market. Anyone strolling through the Rheingasse these days can get the impression that they are in a village square. Residents and stand operators have a relaxed chat, exchange ideas and perhaps taste an exotic curry. Or should it rather be a winter classic, for example raclette or fondue? Either way, connoisseurs will definitely get their money's worth!Details
