Basel Minster (German: Basler Münster) is a religious building in the Swiss city of Basel, originally a Catholic cathedral and today a Reformed Protestant church.
The original cathedral was built between 1019 and 1500 in Romanesque and Gothic styles. The late Romanesque building, destroyed by the 1356 Basel earthquake, was rebuilt by Johannes Gmünd, who was at the same time employed for building the Freiburg Münster. Ulrich von Ensingen, architect of the towers at the Ulm Minster and the Strasbourg Cathedral, extended the building from 1421. Hans Nußdorf completed the southern tower in 1500.

You can find excellent view of Basel here. Entrance of church is free, the gentleman on the entrance of church was very nice and has perfect English.

It was pretty good for a church. Great location with excellent views of Basel. A few flights down the stairs to the Rhein there was also what we understood was the famous ferry across the Rhein that was a great little experience.

Lovely view, meeting point and romantic spot in Basel! Especially when Herbstmesse is in the town! Love it!

Beautiful from both the inside and the outside. The view on the other side over the river is great. It's very nice to walk through the church halls and see all of the wonderful art and sculptures further inside. There was a great free concert here when I came on a Saturday at noon - Stravinsky's Firebird played on organ.

Nice old architecture cathedral. When I visited it was closed for entry due to some work/maintenance. One of the recommended places to visit in Basel. Surrounding is good.
