The Free Architecture Guide of Basel (PDF)

Basel Architecture Guide (PDF) by Virginia Duran

Basel is Switzerland’s little secret. Located where the Swiss, French and German borders meet, Basel is a mecca for architects. Traditionally, the city has had an ancient kind of allure – Medieval Gates, grand cathedrals and historical palaces – but nowadays, contemporary architecture can be found everywhere.

Special thanks to Basel Tourismus and my friend Philipp Heer who organised a short trip to this delightful area of Switzerland, where I could discover – for the first time – Basel’s many charms and architectural gems. Anything interesting in terms of architecture is here. If you find any mistakes, or have any suggestions please let me know in the comments. My intention is to keep it useful. Hope you enjoy!

  3. Liebe Virginia,
    Basel steht auch auf meiner todo Liste, ist allerdings nicht mein erstes Ziel, wenn die Covid-19 Krise endlich vorbei ist.
    Mein erstes Ziel ist Cley next the sea. Friends of us are living there.
    Best wishes, Susanne
