Basel – Culture Unlimited.


Basel can look back on more than 2,000 years of history. A history that is still very much present today – surviving as it does in all the nooks and crannies of the city and forming an exciting contrast to the modern face of Basel. The heart of the city beats in Basel’s well-preserved, romantic old town: its narrow streets and hidden squares with more than 180 fountains are just as charming as its many centuries-old buildings and eye-catching sights, such as City Hall or Basel Cathedral.
