Monthly tour - August: Plants, colours, hightech - The Chemistry in Basel


Basel has a long connection with the chemicals and pharmaceuticals industries. For us, this is a good reason to take a closer look at these two key industries. Many large international companies, such as Novartis or Roche, have key sites in Basel, making the chemicals industry the most important branch of industry in the north-west of Switzerland today. On our tour you will discover more about active ingredients from the plant kingdom, synthetic colourings and university-based research.
