  • Although this building is not in the real "centre" of the old town it is definitely worth the walk.
  • Beautiful gate leading right into Basel's Old Town.
  • I really like the decorated roof of this historic building
  • Was restored during 2015. Now it shines again.
  • A historic landmark located close to the local university and its botanical gardens. Should definitely be on your bucket list if you want to get a full impression of Basle.
