Guided walk with Gian Casper Bott, Director Museum Kleines Klingental
Nowhere in Basel is there a greater concentration of sculptural works in urban space than in the central quarter of Blumenrain, Schifflände and Fischmarkt. Emperor and Pope, Christ and Devil, Biblical Three Kings, Princess of Heaven, Janus, Mercury, Helvetia, Dragon or Lion, all the way to Tauzieher, Fisher Boy, Lällekönig and Amazone invite us to pause. As protagonists, they all line an imaginary route leading across the Mittlere Rheinbrücke to the Kleines Klingental - the forum of medieval sculpture in Basel. The route connects periods from the Gothic to the present and ends at the cast of the statue of Rudolf von Habsburg in Basel's Seidenhof, created especially for the museum in 2021.
Meeting point: Blumenrain 34, Seidenhof, at the memorial plaque Tsar Alexander / J. H. Pestalozzi
