Basel at the heart of Europe
A CITY WITH HISTORY. Basel can look back on over 2000 years of history. And today, it is as present as ever. Its history is alive, offering an exhilarating contrast to the modernity in every corner of the city. In bygone times Even before our era, the Celts settled in Basel. The strategic location drew the Romans to station their armies on the Münster Hill in 30 B.C. After this, events in the middle ages left their impression on the city, in particular that of the Church Council and the founding of Switzerland’s first university in 1460. In Erasmus of Rotterdam’s time, this city of humanists was a centre of book printing and paper production. The reformation then brought silk weaving and dying, which preceded the pharmaceutical and chemical companies. Now Today, this once fortified settlement is a centre for life sciences, as well as for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, and also has important companies in the logistics, transport and financial field. Additionally, Basel is the most important location for trade fairs and congresses in Switzerland, and, with its 200 000 inhabitants, one of the cities with the highest quality of life worldwide.

Mittlere Brücke 2 / D5
A beautiful Old Town Travel through all the eras of time: in hardly any other city do 15th century buildings complement internationally renowned modern architecture to create such a dynamic yet harmonious cityscape. The narrow alleyways and hidden squares with over 180 fountains as well as the many century-old buildings and eye-catching sights such as the City Hall or the Cathedral combine to make Basel’s Old Town one of the most beautiful and intact of its kind in Europe.
Spalentor 3 / A-B6
Old Town buildings and the Roche Tower (Building 1)
Between tradition and modernity Simultaneously, the city welcomes modernity with open arms. As home of Herzog & de Meuron, Basel has created a stir in the world of architecture. Numerous other world-famous celebrities in this field have enriched the city with their works, thus cementing its reputation as a centre for contemporary architecture. The city oscillates between the inheritance of its history and the beat of the present. Tradition and modernity are more than slogans here, they are a living reality.
Tinguely Fountain (Fasnachtsbrunnen)
Cathedral and Pfalz 4 / D-E7 Basel’s landmark must be the Cathedral. This former Episcopal Church was built between the 12th and the 15th century in romanesque and gothic style. Today, the square around the church is a meeting place and is often used for events. From the observation platform, known as the “Pfalz”, you can enjoy a spectacular view overlooking the Rhine, the Kleinbasel district, the Black Forest and the Vosges.

In the centre court, you will find the statue of Munatius Plancus, the founder of the first Roman settlement in the Basel region. Basel Tourism offers regular tours through this historical building.

NORMAL HOUSES ARE WORLD CLASS ARCHITECTURE HERE. Basel’s importance in the world of architecture can be seen in the fact that around one third of the Pritzker Prize holders has built here. At the same time, the city is a creative hotbed for young designers. Architectural eye-catchers Basel is not only home to the architectural duo Herzog & de Meuron. Besides 15th century buildings there are numerous key contemporary works – and the number is continuously increasing. Design with tradition and future The Basel School of Design set trends in co-founding the world-famous “Swiss Style”. What began then has become tradition. Until this day, Basel is the birthplace of many labels and innovative designs.

Welcoming the modern If you are looking for architectural highlights, you are looking in the right place in Basel. Richard Meier, Frank O. Gehry and Mario Botta have built here, and they are in the company of numerous famous colleagues. And who knows? You might even bump into Jacques Herzog or Pierre de Meuron on the street or in a cafe. Birthplace of landmarks Basel is developing fast. Throughout the city, an impressive dynamism is palpable. The planning and realisation of architectural projects are practically carried out on a day-to-day basis. If you haven’t been in Basel for a while, it could be that you are in for a surprise. Architecture and design – hand in hand In autumn 2014, the Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst art college inaugurated its new premises in the Dreispitz district. Even aside from this, Dreispitz – which was formerly known purely for its workshops and warehouses – is being transformed as it fills up with apartments, schools and arts institutions. Architects such as Morger + Dettli, Herzog & de Meuron, Zwimpfer Partner and the Danish Bjakre Ingels Group have been erecting some interesting buildings here that are giving the area a new face.

A visit is a must for any connoisseur of design and architecture – owing not least to the Schaudepot by Herzog & de Meuron – where the museum displays key works from its extensive collection. Tram & Bus: Line 8 to Weil am Rhein Bahnhof/Zentrum, Line 55 to Vitra
Roche Tower (Building 1) 22 / H6 Roche’s “Building 1” can rightly be labelled the modern landmark of Basel since it is the tallest building in Switzerland and visible well beyond the city boundaries. Measuring 178 metres in height, the building designed by architects Herzog & de Meuron was completed in 2015 and houses the offices of the pharmaceutical company, which were previously scattered around the city. But the ambitious project is not finished yet: in 2021, the tower is set to be joined by an even taller high-rise, measuring a colossal 205 metres. Bus: Lines 31, 38 to Hoffmann–La Roche, Line 34 to Peter Rot-Strasse
Novartis Campus 23 / A1 The campus located at the Novartis headquarters has already become a true Mecca for modern architecture. The planning was conducted by the famous Italian architect Vittorio Magnago Lampugnani. Every building on the campus was designed by a different architect. There are buildings by Frank O. Gehry, Diener & Diener, Sanaa and many more; the realisation of this “city in a city” is still in progress. The Campus is not open to the public, but Basel Tourism offers tours of the site every two weeks. Tram: Line 1 to Novartis Campus or line 11 to Voltaplatz
SAVOIR VIVRE IS WRITTEN LARGE HERE. Leisure and relaxation are very important values in Basel. This is reﬂected in the friendly, open, and warm nature of Basel’s inhabitants. The Rhine in the centre The river divides Basel in two. Or better said, it connects the two halves of the city. As the most-visited local recreation area, it has a special importance in the daily lives of the people of Basel. Whether going for a walk, a beer after work, a barbeque evening or an afternoon swim in the summer – the Rhine is a source of wellbeing and relaxation. Swimming in the Rhine On warm summer evenings, you can see lots of people swimming in the Rhine. Take a dip in the cool waters and pay attention to the information boards along the banks of the Rhine, providing you with useful tips. Only those who have enjoyed this extraordinary leisure experience will understand why the Mediterranean seems so close.
