Our tips for the surrounding area:
The Tinguely Fountain, also known as the “Fasnachts-Brunnen” (“Carnival Fountain”), was built between 1975 and 1977 on the Theaterplatz square in Basel. It represents ten mechanical sculptures, which produce jets of water that combine to form a waterworks display typical of Jean Tinguely’s work.
The striking landmark of the Swiss city of Basel is Basel Minster, which is built from red sandstone and belongs to the late Romantic period. Once an episcopal church, the twin-towered minster impresses visitors with its precious interior, which includes important Roman wall frescoes in the crypt and ornately carved choir stalls.
