Peaceful and elegant, this is a marvellous place to walk round at lunchtime and perhaps pause for a sandwich. The Munster has midday prayers at 12 noon each day, which I love to go to, even though it's all in German.

Great cobble stone streets surrounding the cathedral. Beautiful buildings around the cathedral as well. There is a bathroom (W/C) you can use free of charge in the Muensterplatz as well. Not a ton to do here but a good place for relaxation on a bench,...More

We enjoyed the plaza while in Basel to look at the church. It's easy to find if you look for the church spires. The platz offers some seating and a fountain. It is tree covered so there is shade. Spend a few minutes resting while...More

A monumental building but closed when we came. The square around the Münster did not offer anything special so we left after 5 minutes.

The Munster and museums and an elementary school surround the plaza. I love walking through this place and listening to children and church bells and enjoying the architecture and the river views from behind the Munster.

Spent a week in Basel for work and managed to squeeze in some sight seeing. This area serves as a town center almost. Very easy place to meet your group or plan your day and evening meeting points from here. Tons of local vendors come...More

I visited the platz after seeing the beautiful, soaring Basel Munster and found it delightful. A small Christmas market was held there during my visit with a few stalls selling merchandise, but mostly different huts offering various craft projects for kids and their families. Charming!

We arrived at the Christmas Market at night. I think this was the best time to visit with all the magical lights. It was just beautiful. There were many things for the kids, train ride, wood working shop, fairy ornament making, metal works. There's lots...More
