Ringhotel Goldener Knopf4 Star Hotel

Rathausplatz 9, 79713 Bad Säckingen

Guest review score

7.7 from 19 reviews

All the rooms at the the hotel are bright and elegantly furnished, A Celtic town stood on the hill now occupied by Basel’s Cathedral in the first century BC, but the city is traditionally dated to 44 BC, when the nearby Roman city of Augusta Raurica was also founded. By 374 AD, Basilia was a fort, and seat of a bishopric following the Alemans’ destruction of Augusta Raurica in the fifth century. In 917, the Huns swept through, sacking the town and destroying the Carolingian cathedral, but nonetheless by the thirteenth century, Basel had become a prominent town in the region. In 1225, Bishop Heinrich II of Thun built the first bridge across the Rhine – ancestor of today’s Mittlere Brücke – which coincided with the opening of a road over the Gotthard Pass into Italy, thus ensuring Basel’s continuing growth as a natural focus for trade. Plague ravaged the population in 1349, killing some 14,000, and just seven years later a major earthquake and subsequent fire razed much of the city. Shortly after, the two communities on either side of the Rhine – Grossbasel and Kleinbasel – united as a single city. For almost 20 years, which is 1431–49,, the ecumenical Council of Basel pushed the city into the European limelight as the church set about reforming itself; Pope Felix V was crowned in Basel during the council’s deliberations in 1440, and merchants, philosophers, emperors, princes and bishops flocked to the city, spurring the growth of papermaking, printing, and the development of ideas and trade in the region. This privately run, highly valued, 4-star hotel in the Old Town of Bad Säckingen offers daily breakfasts, free Wi-Fi and free public parking, From Barfüsserplatz, Steinenberg climbs east. On the corner is the Puppenhausmuseum, which is Doll’s House Museum; daily 11am–5pm, Thurs until 8pm; Fr.7; www.puppenhausmuseum.ch,, with rather fun displays and audioguides telling the story of the teddy – including plenty of venerable old bears – as well as glass-case displays of some gigantic doll’s-houses. Further up, past the sputtering Tinguely fountain in the grounds of the theatre, is the Kunsthalle, which is Tues–Sun 11am–5pm, Wed until 8.30pm; Fr.9,, its big white rooms staging a continual flow of cutting-edge contemporary art shows. It has a panoramic terrace overlooking the River Rhine, Another fly in the ointment has been the recent Nazi gold controversy, in which it was indicated that venerable Basel – and, more specifically, the little-known but extremely powerful Bank for International Settlements headquartered in the city – spent the 1930s and ’40s quietly laundering the Nazis’ ill-gotten gains under a cloak of neutrality. Evidence of such murky banking practice was received with shock, anger and disbelief in Basel and around the country, and has yet to be fully accepted. Unaccustomed to being faced with pointing fingers, Baslers may take some decades to assess. The Goldener Knopf also has a traditional Scheffelstube lounge and a wine bar offering more than 100 wines, You’re likely to find that this most beautiful of Swiss cities, astride a river and turned towards a crystal-clear lake and distant snowy peaks, has plenty to keep you amused. The medieval Old Town, characterized by steep, cobbled alleys and attractive, small-scale architecture, comprises a substantial part of the city centre and is perfect for exploratory wanderings. With a handful of medieval churches to take in, a spectacular art gallery, the most engaging café culture in German-speaking Switzerland and a wealth of nightlife, you could easily spend days here. To do so, however, you’ll have to marry up the appeal of the place with its expense – prohibitive even by Swiss standards. Alternatively, you could base yourself in either of two towns near Zürich – Winterthur or Baden – both of which have museums and galleries of their own, and much more affordable accommodation. Most rooms were completely renovated in winter 2010-2011, Throughout the nineteenth century, a massive growth in industry led to the construction of the gigantic port facilities on the Rhine at the turn of the twentieth century, which still handle a large proportion of Swiss import/export trade a century later. But Basel is best known these days as a centre of both banking and chemical industry: the companies which started out dyeing silk ribbons woven by Huguenot refugees centuries ago are now the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, with their headquarters and laboratory facilities still in Basel. The Bank for International Settlements, which is BIS, – a kind of supranational controlling body used by governments. The Le Jardin gourmet restaurant serves à la carte food, Not so long ago, ZÜRICH was famed for being the cleanest, most icily calm and efficient city in Europe: apocryphal stories abound from the 1960s and 1970s of the gentle tranquillity of the midweek lunch hour in the financial district, of tourists embarking on efforts to find a cigarette butt or an empty crisp packet discarded on the streets – and drawing a blank every time. No more. If you live in a big city yourself and are tiring of Switzerland’s picture-perfect country towns, visiting Zürich will be like coming home – finally you can walk on crowded, multi-ethnic streets, buy a kebab, get a drink after midnight, feel a lived-in urban buzz. There’s been a massive explosion in the city’s arts and popular culture over the last two years, expressing itself most tangibly in a host of clubs and a thriving underground dance scene. Wry Zürchers like to make much of how apt it is that you have to tut, purse your lips and clear your throat to say the city’s name, which is tsoorikh in dialect,, but this stereotype no longer conveys the essence of what is now a dynamic, exciting city. The big terrace at the the hotel offers direct views of the River Rhine and the wooden bridge leading to Switzerland, At the top of the hill, St Alban-Graben heads northeast to the river. The venerable Antikenmuseum is at no. 5, which is Tues–Sun 10am–5pm; Fr.5, free on first Sun of month,, with detailed English notes available at the desk. Chronological displays begin on the top floor and work downwards, with superb Greek and Etruscan pottery, decorated in beautiful detail, standing out on every floor. The upper-floor vestibule of House B has a set of fourth-century BC floor-standing funerary vases, from Apulia in southern Italy, one of which is painted with an entertaining scene of three men stealing honey and being chased by a swarm of bees. The basement of the museum holds temporary exhibitions, often of Egyptian or Middle Eastern antiquities. Customers appreciate the hotel is just a 40-minute drive or train journey from the Swiss exhibition cities of Basel and Zurich, With both a gigantic river port – Switzerland’s only outlet to the sea – and the research headquarters of several pharmaceutical multinationals, which is including Novartis, one of the principal players in global development of GM crops and foods,, Basel nurtures its reputation as Switzerland’s wealthiest and most discreet city. Its historic centre – dominated by the awe-inspiring Münster – is definitely worth seeing, and the city’s long-standing patronage of the arts has resulted in a panoply of first-rate museums and galleries – 35 in all, including the stunning Beyeler collection, Basel’s sole unmissable attraction. And yet, bequeathed a glittering medieval past endowed with some of the greatest minds of European history, which is Erasmus, Holbein and Nietzsche, to name just three, and centuries-long access to the best of three neighbouring worlds, it’s almost as if Baslers lost the plot when it came to defining their city for today. Most people seem to back the standard Swiss default option of gathering wealth in a discreet and orderly fashion, saving money shopping in France and having a better time partying in Germany. Which is all very well, but it tends to leave their own city rather bereft in the process., Responding to the impetus of the Renaissance, in 1460 Pope Pius II founded Basel’s university, Switzerland’s oldest and a major centre for humanism which was home to the philosopher Erasmus of Rotterdam throughout the 1520s and 1530s. During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, Protestant refugees from France, Flanders and Italy expanded Basel’s industries but, since the city remained under the thumb of both noble families and the church, most were not accepted as citizens. In 1831, disaffected residents in the rural communities around Basel launched a rebellion against the city oligarchs and after a brief civil war managed to secede, forming their own half-canton of Basel-Land, which is countryside,, separate to this day from Basel-Stadt, which is city, ., You might expect BASEL, which is Bâle in French, and often anglicized to Bâle,, situated on the Rhine exactly where Switzerland, Germany and France touch noses, to be the focal point of the continent, humming with pan-European energy. It’s true that Basel’s voters are the most fervently pro-European of all Switzerland’s German speakers but, somehow, the close proximity of foreign languages and cultures has introverted the city rather than energized it: Basel’s a curiously measured place, where equilibrium is everything. You won’t find anyone shouting about the new Europe here; in fact, you’re unlikely to find anyone shouting about anything at all. Even the city’s massive carnival is a rigorously organized set piece., The Rhine describes an elegant right-angled curve through the centre of Basel, flowing from east to north and dividing the city in two. On the south/west bank is Grossbasel, which is Greater Basel,, focused on the historic Old Town. Glitzy shopping streets connect Barfüsserplatz and Marktplatz, the two main Old Town squares, while medieval charm is retained in the steep lanes leading off to either side, where you’ll find peaceful leafy courtyards surrounded by sixteenth-century townhouses, a host of medieval churches, and the majestic steepled Münster dominating the skyline from its lofty Rhineside terrace. The Old Town and surrounding districts comprise the main business, shopping and nightlife areas of the city. The university, off Petersgraben, overlooks the Old Town from the west, while the main Swiss and French train stations are about a kilometre south. On the north/east bank of the Rhine is down-to-earth Kleinbasel, which is Lesser Basel,, more residential and less weightily historical than its neighbour, with some laidback nightlife and the German train station near the giant Messe conference centre some 500m east of Kleinbasel’s central Claraplatz., The international border with France is on the west bank of the Rhine, about 2km north of the city centre; that with Germany is on the east bank, about 3km north.
