Our self-guided digital tour of Basel

Highlights of the tour include the Tinguely Fountain, which is also the recommended starting point of our tour and Cathedral Mountain. The self-guided digital Basel tour also provides an introduction to the city’s history. Like many European cities, Basel is best explored on foot; you will be walking mostly on cobbled streets, so comfortable walking shoes are a must. There is a short but steep ascent to Münsterhill.

Celts settled on the site of today’s Novartis Campus more than 2000 years ago. The excavated settlement is now known as the Basel gas factory. Later they also settled on the Basel Munsterberg and set up an oppidum there. In the course of history, they were followed by the Romans, Alemanni and Franks.

Visitors encounter the eventful history of Basel everywhere in the city. What began with Celts and Romans continued throughout the middle ages. Life in Basel has always been eventful. Individual events and people who have particularly shaped Basel will be presented to you at the stops on the tour.
