18:30 – 20:00
Please join us for a complimentary walking tour ‘Stories of Basel’s Old Town’, a journey back through the ages.
There can be few other cityscapes where buildings dating back as far as the fifteenth century engage so harmoniously and vibrantly with the contemporary creations of internationally distinguished architects. On our tour, we'll tell you facts and anecdotes about Basel and the background to its development while passing historic buildings. We'll also explain a lot about the city's present situation. As well as taking you to some picturesque corners of the Old Town, we'll show you places that closely reflect Basel's present-day Zeitgeist.
The tour will commence at 18:30 following the welcome drinks reception from the entrance of the University Hospital (at Petersgraben 4), concluding at Marktplatz at 20:00.
Spaces are limited, to secure your place please sign up at the registration desk upon arrival at the symposium.
