Basel Town Hall

Basel Town Hall was built in the first decades of the 16thcentury in the late Burgundian Gothic style. Between 1606 and 1608, the Main Office was annexed to the north, built imitating the Gothic style of the original building.


In  the  first  decades  of  the  19thcentury,  after  the  entry  of  Basel  into  the  Swiss  Confederation,  the  town  hall  underwent  to  conservation  and  restoration  works.  At  that  time, elements  of  Neo-Gothic  and  Neo-Renaissance  style  were  added  to  the  building.  Besides,  most  recently,  the  current  façade  has  been  restored  to  recreate  its  original  appearance.  At  present,  the  Town  Hall  houses  the  meetings  of  the  Cantonal  Parliament  as  well  as  the  Cantonal  Government  of  the  canton  of  Basel-Stadt.

Project date: ca.  1510
