Guest review score

8.5 from 25 reviews

In our restaurant we will treat you to dishes prepared from fresh ingredients, very much appreciated, accompanied by exquisite wines from the region, 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. Visitors appreciate the hotel is an intimate and individual hotel & restaurant, highly valued, located just a few minutes from the centre of Bad Säckingen, 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. It was completely refurbished in 2003 and offers 13 guest rooms with all modern comforts as well as cost-free parking, 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., 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, 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, ., A five-minute walk away is the Museum für Gegenwartskunst, St Alban-Rheinweg 60, which is Contemporary Art; Tues–Sun 11am–5pm; joint admission with Kunstmuseum,, its installations by Frank Stella, Joseph Beuys and others sharing space with recent German painting., 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.
