We only saw the outside but did not go inside. Smaller church dating from the 1200's . Has brick building white washed on one side & red sandstone on the other side.

If you do not look you will miss it. The church is a simple whitewash exterior tucked between other buildings. It gets lost. It was not open when we went past.

Situated nearby the Botanical Garden and in a quiet and green neighborhood of Basel, this church may offer a relaxing stop. Enjoy the peacefulness and the total tranquility of the place and then visit the Botanical Garden, which is just in a 5 minutes distance.

The church was closed on the two occasions we went to the square. There was a market on one day and it was interesting to see what people were selling.
