“Charm in the heart of the old town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013

So much of Basel is old and charming, this is a good place to start. But you'll want to fan out, towards the Rhine and along the river's edge to the Contemporary Art Museum, a wonderful walk. Or start from the Munster, go to Barfusser Platz, and then up the hill for the old houses and the view.

“Munster Cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

We were able to climb to the very top of the Cathedral, wonderful view. The interior was beautiful, and the grounds were well done. The view of the River Rhine and the rest of the city behind the church was great

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

When in Basel, this beautiful church is definitely worth a visit. The stained glass windows are wonderful, the peace and silence at this church are inspiring. There are tombs or monuments dating back to 1200! Inside and out, lots of beauty to see.

“Worth a visit, and your time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

The Cathedral is incredible, but the place where it is built, and the terrace over the river Rhine are absolutely worth your time. Please sit down on the benches and feel the soul of this City.

“Better from the Outside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

The Cathedral is part of the city skyline overlooking the Rhine. It has a lovely park behind it so you can do the same. Take a walk though the church but don't hope for too much. It's better from the outside than from the inside.
