An evening along the Rhine – 1

This should be my last (but one!) major series on Basel. I’m trying to do it justice, but I dont think I will succeed in capturing the beauty and warmth of the evening.

And the sun had set….

I hope I am able to do justice to the pictures following this one, these I clicked with the most hope!


One of the many warm, inviting places I would have loved to dine in. Made it into a few, others for another time maybe?


An attempted 360 degree view of the lovely market square. Didn’t come out as well as I hoped, but gives some idea of the place.


A cast metal model of the Minster. I’m standing among the trees to the right of the replica. 🙂

The Blue Rhine….

The view from the rear of the minster, across the Rhine into Klein Basel.
