So happy that our greeter suggested lunch at Markthalle Basel because we wouldn’t have found it on our own. It was an affordable international food court that was filled with incredible homemade flavors!

There's a good variety, although depending on what time of day, some stalls may be closed. Lunch seems to be the time when most are open. It's nice to wander the stalls and you can try different cuisines without breaking the bank. Which is saying...More

5 mins walk from the train station, there are a lot of stalls but only half were open in the evening. Quite a good variety of international food cuisine but the place was quite gloomy and dark, not lighted very well. Good place if you...More
