Life is not possible without trees. The 1000-year history of the Basel city tree comes to life in the exhibition.
The importance of the urban tree is closely related to its origin in the forest, from which many tree myths have developed, because life is not possible without trees. This is expressed in the exhibition.
Early on, the court linden symbolizes the prosperity and protection of the medieval community. In the different phases of urban development, the tree as a means of urban beautification, as an expression of the spirit of the times and as a form of design in green spaces is always at the center. Only conversions of cemeteries and the grinding of city walls connect the idea of urban green spaces with the architectural statement of new urban planning, which today are under the portents of problematic climate warming.
