About Marktplatz

This medieval age market square is immensely popular for its colourful buildings and astir crowd of grocery shops and stalls. When you enter this stately piazza, the first thing that takes notice is the Town Hall (Rathaus) with its 16th-century striking red façade, making it one of the Places to Visit in Basel.

The market takes place every day of the week and is exceptionally busy on Saturdays. The Marktplatz has fresh and local organic produce like Fruits, vegetables, flowers, honey, coffee, meat, handicrafts, wine and a lot more being sold here.

You can also find a lot of Swiss specialities here. While enjoying the fresh eats, you can walk through lanes laced with centuries-old houses in Leonhardsberg and Splanberg, an erstwhile artisan district to get to The Spalentor which is 400m from the Marktplatz.
