To be fair it is just like all the other churches visited in Europe, it wasn't open when we were there on a Monday too.
But the square beside it is huge and there was a HUGE open air cinema and looked like a fun outing, the river is beautiful so clean and fresh unlike the ones in the UK and there were 100's of people swimming along with the current, it was a bizzare view but great, sweet little city, but not much to do

14th century frescoes have survived an earthquake in this very stylish Church overlooking the river in Basel. It is in such pretty surrounds. The ceiling of the crypt has frescoes well worth a look. There are also tombs in the cloisters. We were there in autumn and the trees outside the church were beautiful in all their autumn glory.

Feel totally safe walking around Basel, people are polite, pathways along the river Rhine are really nice, loads of old buildings to marvel at, museums to enter, markets to explore, parks to sit in, even a zoo to go to! Basel has a bit of everything, plus an excellent tram system and easy to navigate train system/station too - many of the staff speak excellent english - which is most helpful & you can get to lots of other cities in Europe from Basel. Thumbs up to Basel.

Came to this pretty cathedral with some coworkers while we were walking around on our first day from the US and it turned out that it was the first night of their free organ concert series. We went down the stairs in the back of the church and took the little boat across the river for fun, and then we came back later and enjoyed the most beautiful concert. It was a wonderful experience.
