    Yes, the market place. There is always something going on here.
    In summer and winter (especially at Christmas) highly recommended.

    In the market square you can buy a very large selection of seasonal fresh fruits, flowers and vegetables. It is open Tuesday through Thursday from 7:00 to 14:00 and Friday and Saturday from 7:00 to 18:00

    beautiful market place, which of course is determined by the impressive town hall. Cafes, bistros, brasseries, etc. invite you to linger and watch.

    The market square is dominated by the imposing red town hall. On the marketplace itself, fresh vegetables, fruits and flowers are offered on weekdays.

    This is where life pulsates. Great architecture, not just the town hall.

    The market is actually a market on some days. We have definitely eaten a delicious Baseler bratwurst.

    When you enter the square, the first thing that catches your eye is the colorful city hall. But this place also plays an important role in the everyday life of the people of Basel: the market, which takes place every weekday, is a nice addition to the grocery stores in the city center. Gourmets will find many delicacies and specialties from the region, Switzerland and from all over the world here.

    Wonderful place with market stalls and historical buildings. In the cold season there is mulled wine and chestnuts 😁
