You can’t have had a European city experience without visiting the Old Town. No place captures the charm and feel of a city other than the Old Town. Basel being a medieval city, the remnants of which are still lurking around in Old Town makes for a fascinating visit to the city’s heart. The Market Plaza or Marktplatz is the main area where all the action happens! Stroll away from here and you’ll find yourself at the foot of the City Gate, the last of three surviving testaments to Basel’s days as a walled city.

In the Old Town, it’s safe to assume that every corner you’ll turn, there’ll be a little piece of history waiting to greet you…don’t be afraid to amble about the lanes that lead away from the Market Plaza. The Tinguely Fountain, Spalenberg, Heuberg and Leonhardsberg are some additional sightings in store for you.
