The Architecture Walking Tour is an organised roup tour of Basel's iconic architecture from throughout the ages.

For a small city, Basel packs a large punch when it comes to all things arty and the architecture is no different. High profile buildings such as Herzog de Meuron’s Basel Messe bird nest and the space age Novartis Campus are merely the most recent additions to a long tradition of architectural iinnovation and creativity. If you’re a geek about buildings or just want to find out more about Basel from an unusual angle, this walking tour is ideal. It covers all aspects of Basel’s built heritage history, from modern additions to the well preserved 15th century structures in the Old Town. The tour is organised for groups on demand.
