Our visit occurred during a relatively cold day. The Munster and the Christmas markets occupy the square, Riggergasse, and the sense of a medieval festival came alive!

The courtyard outside the Münster transforms into a Christmas market from Nov 22 till Dec 23. Can shop while being amazed by the architecture of the Münster. I often wonder how many manhours we into the construction of churches like this.

You can't avoid noticing it when in Basel. Pay it a visit when air is clean to enjoy a nice view over Reno river and town surroundings.

Nice to visit for some quiet contemplation. As a Church of the Reformation it is quite plain inside but has some nice stained glass and tiled roofs.

This was one of the sites I wanted to see in Basel. We were lucky enough to stop in as their choir and orchestra was rehearsing for Christmas musicals. It was nice to rest for a bit and enjoy the music. A must is to...More

Gothic architecture, great views of the river, and awesome stained glass windows. This is a historic church and should be one of top 10 sites to see in Basel.

Everyone should spend some time visiting this beautiful church. The architecture and stained glass windows are difficult to describe. Well worth the visit.

Our favourite thing to do in Basel. Beautiful views on multiple levels up the towers, and to see the detail of the building. Costs 5 CHF per adult. Went on Saturday, closes at 4pm, but we noticed they closed admission from about 3.30. Highly recommended!

Yes, its 2 SFR pp. But sometimes they only let a minimum of 4 people go up. Why? Haven't a clue.

Yes, it is free to tour, I didn't climb the tower, but the church and grounds are free.
