The Pfalz Viewing Platform is located directly behind the Basel Minster Cathedral. It offers fantastic panoramic views over the Altstadt, the Rhine River, the expansive City of Basel, and as far as the border triangle. After taking memorable photos there are stairs that lead down to the Rhine, and the jetty of the Rheinfahre.

The Basel viewing platform also known as Basler Pfalz, nestled atop the city's iconic Pfalz hill, offers a breathtaking panorama of the city and Rhine river. The sweeping views cover Basel's charming old town, the Rhine River and occassional swimmers and boats, and the distant Swiss and French Alps. It's an ideal spot for photographers, romantics, and anyone seeking a moment of rest. It's easily accessible through the Basel Minster church as it's located behind it and connets to all parts of the town.

After visiting the cathedral and its place you walk towards the Rhine river. There you enter the place Pfalz with big old trees and the terrace overlooking the Rhine river towards Kleinbasel and the mountains of the Black Forest in Germany.

Behind the Munster Cathedral there is a large terrace with amazing views of the city. You can look down at the river and watch the Munster Ferry carrying people across the river. We were there when they were using helicopters to move material and trees from the lowest path.

The Pfalz is the high plateau on the left side of the Rhein river. Its main attraction is the cathedral with its cloisters wich precides the homy place on the town side. On the riverside there is a waste terrace wich gives a splendid view on the river and on Kleinbasel (smaller part of the medieval Town). At the basis of the Pfalz is the docking place of one of the caracteristic current driven ferries.

An observation platform located behind the cathedral, on the high bank of the Rhine. The view from here is very beautiful. If you go down a lot of stairs to the river bank, you can take a passenger ferry to the other bank.
Quite crowded.

The area is outside the big church. It offers some shade and great views of the river. It’s a nice place to relax for a bit.
