Christmas city Basel
At the end of November, Basel turns into a Christmas city and, with numerous attractions, invites connoisseurs from near and far to enjoy its unique atmosphere. A particular emphasis is placed on the Christmas market, which is now no longer held on the Barfüsserplatz, but on the Münsterplatz. At this beautiful location above the Rhine, visitors can find a wide range of specialities, Christmas and gift articles, as well as a fine food and drink. And all this at the foot of the Basel Cathedral, and only a few steps from the Pfalz, from where you can obtain a fantastic view over pre-Christmas Basel.
Thousands of fairy lights and tastefully decorated Christmas trees invite you to enjoy an evening of Christmas shopping. The Christmas market on Barfüsserplatz boasts over 150 stalls, with everything you could think of. To complete the atmosphere, there are many concerts and inner city shows for young and old. Over the years, Basel has acquired a reputation as a wonderful Christmas city.
