Gundeldingen Castle

Gundeldingen Castle is a castle in the Gundeldingen neighborhood of the municipality of Basel of the Canton of Basel-Stadt in Switzerland. It is a Swiss heritage site of national significance. Originally four related castles, today parts of only two remain.

The Front or Inner Castle (Vorderes oder Inneres Gundeldingen) was built during the 16th century as a manor house for a wealthy merchant. Over the following centuries it was owned by a number of wealthy families. The manor was the center of a large country estate and for over two centuries was surrounded by a large garden and duck pond. The main building was first painted red about 250 years ago, beginning a tradition that lasts until today. Only the main building remains at Dittingerstrasse 20.
