  • Close to the lively fountains of Tinguely and the city's theatre, it is a rather beautiful church and a very attractive architectural style.

  • It is worth a visit for at least two reasons: the first because it is a fine example of neo-Gothic architecture, well preserved. The second, because a singular (at least for me) case of "offensive Kirche", that is, of "open church", born as a Protestant church (but not recognized by the local religion) and then became aconfessional or multi-confessional. It is both a church and a cultural and social recreational centre. From the posters on display I have seen that, in addition to religious functions, there are also concerts, lectures but also courses in tai-chi and meditation.

  • I entered here and felt like in a time machine which took me back in time hundreds of years. Moody atmosphere, you feel the breath of history on your neck. The church is well kept and preserved in its original state. Lots of interesting architectural details.
  • The Elizabethen Open Church is an architectural symbol in Basel. The construction took place from 1857 to 1865. The interior arches as well as the stained glass windows are worthy to mention. Since 1994 the building is used for spiritual and cultural activities including classical and modern music concerts, theatre, dances, even special dinners. A visit to Basel would not be complete without visiting this monumental church.
