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.

A surprise interior, with the most exquisite fresco fragments, well preserved. There were little explanation leaflets scattered around the church. We spent longer than we thought we would.
