Basel travel guide

  • Grossbasel (Old Town): With its century-old homes, stone alleys, and welcoming ambience, this area of Basel is stunning. You may see a contemporary fountain created by renowned sculptor Jean Tinguely amidst the old homes. With its little side alleys, charming cafés, and several prominent buildings decorated in Baroque architecture, the old town exudes a hint of the fantastical. The Marktplatz, a well-known market street, the Basel Cathedral, and the Geltenzunfthaus, a historic structure, are a few of the must-see locations in this area.
  • Basler Münster (Basel Minster): This gothic-style temple may pique your interest to explore this beautiful church. This place of worship in Basel's old centre has twin spires and a tiled roof. The location of the church is also at the highest point, so it can be viewed from all throughout the city. Much of the structure had to be renovated after an earthquake in 1356, yet it retains its original charm.
  • Tinguely Fountain: An important landmark in Basel, the Tinguely Fountain, is named after the Swiss artist who designed it, Jean Tinguely. It’s a fun place to play in a shallow pool with iron figures shooting water into the air. There are a total of 10 fountain figures. These figures were made from pieces of metal found in an old theatre that used to be here. Visit Basel during the warmer months to fully enjoy this.
  • Kunstmuseum Basel: This is Basel's famous museum with the best collection of modern and old paintings. These installations include 15th-century Heilsspiegel Altar by Konrad Witz, Crucifixion by Matthias Grünewald, and 16th-century portrait by Holbein the Younger. The second floor houses a number of collections from the 19th- and 20th-century.
  • Fondation Beyeler: Founded by collectors Ernst and Hildi Beyerer, the Beyerer Foundation presents a wide range of works of art by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Georges Seurat, Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, and Vincent van Gogh. Also included are numerous paintings, drawings, and sculptures by Alberto Giacometti and Max Ernst.
