  • Located just outside the theatre the fountains are great to look at. Wouldn’t make a day of it but if you happen to stumble across them they are worth a photo or two!  more »
  • Lovely feature. Great use of what might otherwise have been a rather drab pond. Authorities might be a bit more attentive to the amount of bird droppings around the edges!  more »
  • A beautiful original fountain, the square could be somewhat karg, made but beautiful no benches, only concrete

  • Curious art fountain from famous artist Tinguely. Impressive to see in winter when it is frozen
  • A fun diversion for the kids while visiting Basel.
  • There's an almost therapeutic calm in listening to the machines conduct their symphony of splashes. Visiting here in the early evening after the sun has left allows you to experience whacky machine silhouettes with the fountain lit up by lights protruding from the water. It's an ideal time given you are likely to be able to be alone with your thoughts and only the odd passerby.
  • Magical during winter time - all iced up !
  • Very cute and hypnotic spot. Very charmy in winter with the icing view...
