Free Walking Tours Basel is an independent nonprofit association offering free tours in Basel to visitors and locals in English. On this day, they will offer a guided tour of Kleinbasel. In the Middle Ages, what is now known as Basel was actually two independent towns. This tour will take you to the Kleinbasel side of the river, including the Messeplatz, small breweries, the Rhein, and the Kaserne (Barracks). Looked down on by Grossbasel in the past, the “Brooklyn of Basel” is today a multiethnic and multicultural place with lots of stories to tell, be they of international or local importance. Learn why the citizens of Basel moved a whole train station, hear how a smart citizen defeated a powerful cartel, and see who nowadays drinks water in old horse stalls. And who is a Bebbi and what do they do in summer?
The philosophy of Free Walking Tours is that a good city tour is priceless, so it is up to you to decide how much you want to pay. The guides work on a tip basis, which incentivizes them to give you their best, and at the same time makes it possible for everyone to enjoy the tours, whatever your budget may be. If you are interested in joining one of the scheduled tours, there is no need to sign up! Just check the website, show up at the given time and location, and enjoy the tour.
Meeting place for this tour is at Badischer Bahnhof in front of the clock tower.
