There can be few other places where buildings dating back as far as the fifteenth century engage so harmoniously and vibrantly with the creations of modern-day architects. Our "Architecture in Basel" brochure offers three self-guided walks that will take you past the most important contemporary buildings.
So much art and architecture can give you quite an appetite! The Restaurant Krafft will treat you to creatively prepared local produce, in its elegant dining room or on its summer terrace. With a view of the Rhine, of course.
Probably no other artist was more in tune with Basel than Tinguely. Which is why the Basel-based pharmaceutical group Roche built a museum as a monument to him. The building by Mario Botta houses not only a comprehensive collection of his work but also exhibitions of his artistic predecessors.
The Messeturm (exhibition centre tower) by Morger & Degelo and the adjacent exhibition centre aren't just an architectural attraction. On the 31st floor you'll find the highest bar in Basel from where you can enjoy a view extending to Germany and France.
All under one roof: the Teufelhof Basel houses a hotel with artistically designed rooms, a small theatre, a wine store and two restaurants: the "Atelier" for every day and the "Bel Etage" for special occasions.
Theater Basel is Europe biggest multipurpose theatre, offering high-calibre ballet, opera and theatre productions every evening. You'll be amazed at what you can see on Basel's stages.
