Theatre in Basel

Switzerland’s largest multipurpose theatre, a cultural centre for the free theatre, dance and performance scenes and countless smaller stages with pieces for young, old and everyone in between: fans of the theatre will be more than satisfied in Basel.

Basel offers a comprehensive programme

The famous Tinguely fountain in front of the theatre’s entrance could also be described as Basel’s cultural epicentre. This is where the city theatre’s stage once stood, and to this day the surrounding cultural scene comes to life here every day at dusk. The Tinguely fountain therefore stands in the perfect spot for giving theatregoers a first impression of the exciting things that await them inside.
