Things To Do in Basel

Basel Minster
50 Reviews
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.

City Hall
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.

Tinguely Museum

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.
Basel Museum of Ancient Art and Ludwig Collection
12 Reviews
fz570628The Museum of Ancient Art in Basel is the largest and most influential museum of popular art in Switzerland, as well as the oldest museum. It was opened to the public as early as 1671. 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.
