  • How did the city of Basel become what it is today? On this tour we try to trace the important steps Basel has taken in it’s more than 2000 year old history and decorate it with some (more hidden) sights. We try to follow a chronological order as good as we can and built the pillars of the earth from the bottom to the top. We beginning with the Celts and Romans, visit the bishopric, elect a pope, built up the once biggest European paper and silk industry, join Switzerland and end up with the resourceful chemical research center from today.
