Welcome!

Basel is a place of exciting contrasts.

Contrasts such as masterpieces of contemporary

architecture set against the

well-preserved Old Town, or the wonder -

ful harmony between the city’s cosmopolitan

flair and vibrant traditions.

And although classical modernism and

street art may seem like they are worlds

apart, both have a prominent place in

Basel. We are in flux, constantly reshaping

ourselves. So every time you come to

Basel, you will discover something new.

In the pages of this booklet, you will

find a treasure trove of information and

inspiration, including exclusive tips from

locals that will make your visit unforgettable.

I therefore invite you to read on

and dis cover the many different facets

of our city!

Basel is art

Basel is the perfect place to embark on a

fascinating journey through the world of art.

With its many museums, the world’s largest

art fair and a lively, young art scene, Basel

is a small city with a big cultural scene that

attracts visitors from across the globe.

The profound connection between the

people of Basel and the fine arts began

with the establishment of the Kunstmuseum

in 1661. The exhibition, which now features

over 300,000 works from across eight centuries,

is considered the oldest public art

collection in the world – quite impressive!

But that’s only the beginning. Art aficionados

will be kept busy for days in Basel, whether

with contemporary works, antique sculptures,

cartoons or even teddy bears.

Basel is history

If ever there was a city that tells a story,

that city is Basel. Surrounded by modern

buildings, the well-preserved Old Town, the

three imposing city gates and the Cathedral

(Münster) continue to bear witness to

bygone days.

Basel’s attractive location on the Rhine and

the strategically important Münsterhügel

(Cathedral Hill) first attracted the Celts to the

bend in the Rhine in the Bronze Age, before

the Romans made Basel an important trading

centre. Later, after the founding of the first

Swiss university in 1460, the city became a

centre of the humanist movement and of

book printing.

What happens next in the story? It’s up to you

to decide what chapter you want to immerse

yourself in. One thing is certain: you will be

able to feel Basel’s history in every nook and

cranny of the city.

Local’s Tip

At the “Zunft” (“guild”) restaurants,

which are protected as historical

monuments, old traditions meet

innovative new gastronomic

interpretations.

History

Classic sights

In Basel, you don’t have to look long to find

historical places of interest. You will find them

wherever you go. For example, it would be

impossible to walk through the Stadtmarkt

and miss the magnificent Town Hall behind it.

And however you cross the Rhine – whether

you go over the Mittlere Brücke bridge or

take a charming ferry ride – these are routes

that have been connecting Grossbasel with

Kleinbasel for a century or even for several

centuries.

Local’s Tip

At Acero – right next to the

bridge on the Kleinbasel

side – you will find exquisite

home-made gelato.

26

Mittlere Brücke

The original Mittlere Brücke (middle bridge)

was built in 1226, and is one of the oldest river

crossings anywhere on the Rhine. The bridge was

rebuilt in 1905, with the copy of the old chapel

reminiscent of its previous incarnation.

Trendy areas

If you love good design, you will make slow

progress on the route from the Marktplatz

up Spalenberg. That’s not so much down to

the incline as it’s down to the many beautiful

things you are sure to find in the small shops

here. If you love experimental design, urban

art and events that are far from mainstream,

Kleinbasel is the place for you. The Reh4

organization gathers about 50 shops, cafés,

bars and galleries with surprising concepts

Basel is experiences

Do you want to experience something

special? Then you have come to the right

place. Amid the unique atmosphere of the

Carnival in Basel, you can drive the winter

away together with the “Waggis”. And on

a hot summer’s day, let yourself be carried

along by the river’s gentle current.

In the warmer months, this much-loved

tradition is hard to resist. After all, what

could be better than cooling off with a

swim in the Rhine and admiring the historical

backdrop of the city as you float by?

People here know how to enjoy life!

So do as the people of Basel do and

discover for yourself why it’s so fun.

Events

Basel never stands still. There is always

something going on. At the start of the year,

everyone is on tenterhooks waiting for the

three-day carnival. And in summer, the sound

of the Scottish bagpipes brings people from

near and far to the Basel Tattoo. The Herbstmesse

(autumn fair) is more than just romance

on the Ferris wheel and an adrenaline rush.

For foodies and gourmands, the many tasty

specialities on offer are the main attraction

here at Switzerland’s oldest and largest fair.

And if you are on your way to the Christmas

market, the Christmas lights on the streets

and alleys will have you in a festive mood

before you even get there.

Christmas, Rheingasse transforms

into Adväntsgass.

beyond the city limits, you could not be further

off the mark.

Just a stone’s throw from here, you can discover

Strasbourg and Colmar are worth a visit any

time, not to mention at Christmas.

24 stops along the

Rehberger Weg

from Riehen to

Weil am Rhein.

can be found just across the border, for example
