This cathedral is beautiful, inside and out, and located on a lovely square in Basel. At the time of my visit, a Christmas Market was being held on the square, which made my visit even more special and festive. A must-see!

The cathedral is lovely. At the end of my river cruise found out that there was a free organ concert in the cathedral. The acoustics were wonderful and the two organ players were amazing.

We visited for Christmas Eve carols with the town band in the Munster square. There had just been a concert with local youth. It's a very traditional place with a Christmas Market in the square.

A tour of Europe must include a visit to its many cathedrals as they often encompass the history of the city and the region. A magnificent example!

Yes, its 2 SFR pp. But sometimes they only let a minimum of 4 people go up. Why? Haven't a clue.
