Easy and informative historical walking tour in Basel.

The third-largest city of Switzerland is located on three borders and divided into two parts by the river Rhine which begs to be admired from one of its eight bridges. Influences from neighboring France and Germany and a large student population make Basel a vibrant and creative city.

Most of the places of interest are concentrated in so-called "Big Basel". We will walk through the Old Town, taking in cobbled streets, admiring the colorful fountains and explore the historical medieval city with it's churches with unique altars and frescos, narrow lanes with curious names and decorated houses, ramparts towers.

Let us study the stone and wood portals and the choruses of the Cathedral (Münster) and take the view from Pfalz, the terrace overlooking the Rhine with the great panorama of Kleinbasel (Little Basel) and, and, on clear days the Black Forest, the Vosges and Jura mountains. Later, we shall pass by some magnificent city residences, to take a moment to glance at the courtyard of the Town hall.
