fz570628Basel Cathedral is one of the main sights in Basel’s Old Town. The high walls of the cathedral are made of dark red sandstone. The top of the slope is squeezed into regular geometric patterns with colorful glazed tiles. The towering twin towers have witnessed the vicissitudes of the cathedral over the centuries. The church has undergone hundreds of years of repairs and reconstructions, and the architectural style has also changed with the ages. Until the 18th century, it became a post-Baroque and neoclassical style.
xiaohei5678Located in the northwestern corner of Switzerland, Basel is a very interesting town near France and Germany. It is very close everywhere. Closer is the hilly area of the Saône region in southeastern France, where there is a church of Ronchamp designed by the architect Le Corbusier. Of course, Basel itself also has historical background and international financial importance.
fz570628As it was written, I noticed that a Basel City Hall was missing, so I quickly made it up. The City Hall of Basel is located in Marktplatz in the old city. It has a dark red facade, high towers, a beautiful interior wall painted with colorful pictures, a romantic arcade, and a majestic sculpture standing in a corner of the courtyard. Everything is magnificent and artistic. The City Hall was built in the 16th century. The walls are painted with exquisite paintings by famous ancient Swiss painters and hung twelve emblems of the twelve cantons that joined the Swiss Confederation.
xiaohei5678It's a bit like a fairy tale world, small characters and small objects are all lifelike. Although the small city of Basel is not big, it brings visitors beyond imagination. It is unforgettable for a lifetime.
fz570628There is a peculiar attraction in the Old City of Basel. It is a fountain called "Dingley Fountain" composed of all kinds of used mechanical equipment. Unlike the usual fountains that show various gestures and graphics with regular water flow, each machine is They all form a pool of fountains with their own water streams. The water streams have different shapes, long and short, high and low, and left and right. They are very strange and funny, and have become a special landscape in Basel.

The museum houses 15-17th century paintings and 19-20th century sculptures of great historical value. One of Rodin’s "The Volunteers of Calais" sculpture, I have seen on the campus of Stanford California campus (the school has collected many Rodin's works), it expresses a tragic and noble act of sacrifice in real history, with exquisite And profoundly portrays the emotions and personalities of different characters before death.
#basel is a town in Switzerland very close to France. The very interesting fact is that the airport of Basel is actually inside the territory of France. So if you land there you will have to pass the border entering Switzerland. Anyway, there is a public bus that runs to the town.

Basel is the last stop of our trip to Switzerland. It is the third largest city in Switzerland. A Rhine River passes through the city and divides Basel into two. There are also world-famous festivals and exhibitions, and there are colorful colors in the streets of the old town. In Basel, this day, the public is not beautiful, it has been raining, adding a hint of gloom, but making the city more temperament.
But the focus of this set of photos is that CC finally wears pants again! Haha!
D11 Switzerland - Basel (city sightseeing, drifting fan)
11th day, so fast, feel good, not enough to play, it is time to leave.
At the Virgin Wharf in Basel, there is another triangular sign indicating that it is the border of the three countries of Faderui.
On the last day, I plan to visit the relaxed city of Basel.
and Basel drifting is a sauce, no need for a scorpion, people go to the upstream, self-exile by the water, float down and squat, continue the next cycle.
Small back, not dirty, not afraid of the sun, are skin-friendly girls ah
The famous Swiss city of Basel is located at the junction of the three countries of Defari. It is a good preserve of modern construction and old district architecture. It has a profound cultural heritage and historical temperament. The people of Basel are keen on pursuing culture and art. Therefore, the preservation of historical buildings is complete. Art galleries and museums are mostly located in ancient buildings.
Basel maximizes the traces of history and restores their original appearance as much as possible. Basels well-preserved old neighbourhood reveals a profound cultural atmosphere and respect for history. For the war-torn Europe, such a complete building is now unique. All the streets describe the customs and history here. A scene of European oil painting is unfolding in front of you, even if you dont go to museums and art galleries. You can also feel the art in every street.
The Basel Cathedral in the old town is a Catholic church with red sandstone buildings, which is rare in European churches. The architecture of the church is a mix of Gothic and Romanesque. The
church spire towers towering into the sky. The cathedral is home to the supreme ruler who ruled the city for centuries. They are both spiritual leaders and secular rulers. The main entrance of the cathedral is Gothic with fine carvings. There is a unique timepiece on the side, which makes the time, every minute and every second, blend into this artistic atmosphere.
The city of Basel is actually divided by the Rhine River. The left bank is called Grand Basel, which is an economic commercial and leisure shopping center. The right bank is called Little Basel. It is mainly a flower shop, a studio, a craft workshop, and a fine wood. A caf serving cheese snacks and drinks.
Basel's Old Town is a striking medieval building that spreads over the hilly embankments. At the same time, he is also a progressive modern city with more than 40 art and culture museums and a history of Basel. The long streets add a modern touch.
Weird all kinds of art graffiti, there are very few pedestrians on the road, maybe it is the working time at this time, and we are also in the relatively remote industrial park. But looking at these young performance art graffiti along the way, you can feel the culture of the younger generation of Basel.
After the riverside passes through three bridges, the last one is an old bridge - Selzhong Bridge, which is also the history of the "unpleasant" of Basel and Little Basel. Going to the old town of Basel, behind the old bridge with the flag waving, I have seen the charming buildings of the old city of Basel.
The old bridge is hung with the flags of various countries. It can be seen that Basel is a very liberal and vibrant city. Basel is the home of tennis superstar Federer, who was born and raised here. In his words, it is "one of the most beautiful cities in the world". Everyone's hometown is beautiful, but Basel does have something to stop.
Basel is the place to live.
Basel at the junction of the three countries of Farrell has a "Three Kingdoms Junction Monument" - this place is quite difficult to find, you must first pass through an inaccessible industrial area, and then take a little while to see this rocket. A monument on the banks of the Rhine with the national flags of Switzerland, France and Germany.
Basel is indeed a very "international" city. Large companies such as Novartis and Roche and countless small and medium-sized enterprises are located here. There are countless "international residents" in the city. Going forward from the "Three Kingdoms Junction Monument" for a little while is the territory of Germany. After turning over the bridge and crossing the Rhine, it will be in France. Ten minutes through the Three Kingdoms, it is as simple as walking in the same city.
wants to come to Switzerland with high prices, and the proximity of France and Germany is much more affordable, so I walked a few minutes from the monument and saw a mighty when I walked over a small bridge to Germany. Shopping army, and some even dragged the box... Their goal is a German mall with a bridge at the border. In the mall, people can be said to be crowded, people are crowded, the price of goods in supermarkets is indeed much cheaper than in Switzerland, and tax rebates are also available! Customs and shopping malls are almost a step away, and the tax rebate team is also discharged to the oldest, all of them are carrying big bags and eyebrows and smiling... It seems that people all over the world like to be cheap, that is, in wealthy Switzerland, no exception.
When I told my friend that I was going to travel in Basel, he showed my surprise: "Why do you want to travel in Basel? It may be the 'most not like' place in Switzerland, it is used to turn "The train!"
In fact, Basel is known as the "Florence" of Switzerland, because of its numerous museums, the world-renowned watch fairs, and the well-preserved medieval era. Block.
Autumn Basel is indefinite, and the pattering rain infiltrates the city on the Rhine. If it weren't for the rain, I thought I would stay longer in the Dingley Fountain - this fountain on the site of the original Alcazar in Basel, by the artist Jean Tinguely
With an umbrella, walk along the wet stone road to the slightly unconventional Basel Cathedral in Switzerland. This tall Gothic spire building is perhaps the most overlooked building in the Old Town of Basel. It is said that from the 11th century - and 1000 years ago, the Catholic Church broke ground and has been repeatedly rebuilt. The exterior of the church is red sandstone, which does not look magnificent, but the interior is beautiful. The famous writer Erasmus at the Renaissance was also in this church.
I started climbing upwards when the countdown to the church's apex was 40 minutes. It was not easy to climb a church in Europe. The stairs were narrow and steep, making me breathless. However, the scenery after the apex has made this kind of "hard" worthwhile - the drizzle is still fascinating, the blue sky has been exposed in the distance, the whole Basel is in sight, the Rhine is at the foot, faint, You can also hear the drumming sound of the river parade.
