[Swiss Tour] Basel is located in the northwest corner of Switzerland. Basel is on the upper reaches of the Rhine. It is surrounded by Germany and France and becomes the junction of the three countries. To the north is the Black Forest, and to the west is the Alsace region. As a cultural intersection, it has been a city of culture and art since the Middle Ages.
Basel City Hall is a representative building located on the city's market square, a red sandstone building with a unique tower. It has been more than 500 years since.
Address: Marktpl. 9
Basel is the last stop of our trip to Switzerland. It is the third largest city in Switzerland. A Rhine River passes through the city and divides Basel into two. There are also world-famous festivals and exhibitions, and there are colorful colors in the streets of the old town. In Basel, this day, the public is not beautiful, it has been raining, adding a hint of gloom, but making the city more temperament.
But the focus of this set of photos is that CC finally wears pants again! Haha!
The famous Swiss city of Basel is located at the junction of the three countries of Defari. It is a good preserve of modern construction and old district architecture. It has a profound cultural heritage and historical temperament. The people of Basel are keen on pursuing culture and art. Therefore, the preservation of historical buildings is complete. Art galleries and museums are mostly located in ancient buildings.
Basel maximizes the traces of history and restores their original appearance as much as possible. Basels well-preserved old neighbourhood reveals a profound cultural atmosphere and respect for history. For the war-torn Europe, such a complete building is now unique. All the streets describe the customs and history here. A scene of European oil painting is unfolding in front of you, even if you dont go to museums and art galleries. You can also feel the art in every street.
The Basel Cathedral in the old town is a Catholic church with red sandstone buildings, which is rare in European churches. The architecture of the church is a mix of Gothic and Romanesque. The
church spire towers towering into the sky. The cathedral is home to the supreme ruler who ruled the city for centuries. They are both spiritual leaders and secular rulers. The main entrance of the cathedral is Gothic with fine carvings. There is a unique timepiece on the side, which makes the time, every minute and every second, blend into this artistic atmosphere.
With an umbrella, walk along the wet stone road to the slightly unconventional Basel Cathedral in Switzerland. This tall Gothic spire building is perhaps the most overlooked building in the Old Town of Basel. It is said that from the 11th century - and 1000 years ago, the Catholic Church broke ground and has been repeatedly rebuilt. The exterior of the church is red sandstone, which does not look magnificent, but the interior is beautiful. The famous writer Erasmus at the Renaissance was also in this church.
I started climbing upwards when the countdown to the church's apex was 40 minutes. It was not easy to climb a church in Europe. The stairs were narrow and steep, making me breathless. However, the scenery after the apex has made this kind of "hard" worthwhile - the drizzle is still fascinating, the blue sky has been exposed in the distance, the whole Basel is in sight, the Rhine is at the foot, faint, You can also hear the drumming sound of the river parade.
