Overview
More
More than 2000 years ago the Celts fortified their new settlement on the cathedral hill by building a massive bank and ditch enclosure. Today, three windows in the ground provide a glimpse of the ruined enclosure. Tip: Make an archaeological tour in Basel: The free audio guide app ,,Archaeo Tour" shows you around original sites from the Celtic, Roman and medieval periods of Basel's history.

We regret that you could not see much. We try to keep the windows clean, but in autumn it’s quite difficult with the leaves.

Just opposite the Munster, you will notice some contemporary zinc clad, glass-topped angular shards poking up from the ground. On closer inspection you find yourself peering down into an archaeological excavation that has uncovered centuries of occupation of the area where Basel now stands. One...More
