Basel: what to see
The Cathedral of Basel, Basel Munster in German, is a religious building among the largest in the whole of Switzerland and dates back to the XI century, when it was built in Romanic style.
In 1356 an earthquake caused the almost complete destruction of it and only in the XVI century it was completely rebuilt in Gothic style. The architecture of the church is slender and presents two twin towers. The interior has three aisles and is very bright thanks to the presence of wide glass windows. The Cathedral of Basel was also seat of an important council and within it there are very precious artworks.
The Town Hall, located in Marktplatz, in the old town, was built in the XVI century in the late medieval Gothic style and is noted due to its red colour and for its façade with rich ornaments, in addition to the tower which ends with a golden decoration.
Within the Town Hall there is a statue that recalls Lucius Munatius Plancus, a Roman soldier who founded the city. If you reach Basel without your own car, choosing the car rental at Basel Airport will be the best solution.
