Stories of Basel's Old Town

About this offer

Duration:   2 hours

Join us on a journey back through the ages. There can be few other cityscapes where buildings dating back as far as the fifteenth century engage so harmoniously and vibrantly with the contemporary creations of internationally distinguished architects. On our tour, we'll tell you facts and anecdotes about Basel and the background to its development while passing historic buildings such as the Town Hall, the Basel Cathedral (Münster) and the Barfüsserkirche. We'll also explain a lot about the city's present situation. As well as taking you to some picturesque corners of the Old Town, we'll show you places that closely reflect Basel's present-day Zeitgeist, such as the Museum der Kulturen and the Tinguely fountain.
