Take a stroll through the ages: in few other cities will you find buildings from the 15th century blend so well with internationally acclaimed contemporary architecture to create a fascinating cityscape.
Basel’s Old Town is one of the finest and most intact in Europe, yet the city is also open to everything new and has developed into a true architectural metropolis over recent decades.
Local architectural firms such as Herzog & de Meuron and Diener & Diener have inspired the world with their sensational buildings and made a major contribution towards the development of their home town.
Architects from abroad, such as Richard Meier and Frank Gehry, have also made their mark, and the Basel area has 12 buildings designed by winners of the coveted Pritzker Architecture Prize.
