This square is one of the main squares in Basel. It holds lots of museum and one of the best schools around. The square has lots of history, old building and the beautiful view of the Rhine River. My kids study at the Münsterplatz school...More

Situated overlooking the Rhine and gradually being restored. An extraordinarily ancient door/archway. My daughter was married outside here to her Swiss husband so it was a thrill to see Basel Munster.

The best part of this cathedral is the climb up the tower. For only 5 francs each, and a steep climb up many winding stairs, you are rewarded with a beautiful panoramic view of the city! FYI there is a free public restroom in the...More

Entry to the church is free. The tower costs extra, but is worth the money. You will have a great view from up there.
