Basel City Hall is a magnificent edifice that continues to stand at the centre of the body politic despite fundamental political changes. Its structure has obeyed aesthetic considerations and material requirements, both in the distant past and more recently. Younger generations always honoured and respected the accomplishments and achievements of those who had gone before. Basel City Hall boasts splendid Late Gothic, Renaissance and Modern architecture, colourful murals and sculptures. In terms of artistry, craftsmanship and workmanship its interior fittings and furnishings are second to none. Diverse and yet coherent, Basel City Hall is a first-rate architectural monument – the city of Basel‘s worthy icon.
