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.
