Today after a lovely, non-alarmed wake up, we went walkabout in Basel.
Quoting Basel’s own website Together with the Mittlere Brücke, the Cathedral is the most famous landmark of Basel. With its red sandstone walls, colourful roof tiles and twin towers, no other building adorns the cityscape of Basel like the Cathedral.
Apparently the cathedral was originally Catholic but is now Reformed Protestant. There was a service taking place as we visited and we could hear some beautiful choral singing.
The view down river to Mittlere Brücke (bridge) where construction is going on. The white is a cover over the construction site on the bridge. There is a walkway still open to the side to allow pedestrians cross the bridge.
An unusual ferry crossing the river via a ziplineFun fountains… unusual machines, one was a sieve picking up coins
Basel seems like a lovely city, hilly which I think adds a lot of charm to any city. It has many old, very interesting buildings. Last night the city centre was humming with many busy restaurants and bars.
A second, good night Basel!
