After a short introduction at the Meeting Point, usually the ‘Tinguely’ fountain, this Walk takes you up and around Minster Hill Basel’s religious and civil heart while Jakob tells you all about its history and present. It ends about 90 minutes later in the courtyard of city hall, the Rathaus.

Spalentor Basel / JAMIX International Communication Services ‘Women, Walls & Towers’ with the Spalentor
Asked to include stories about famous and interesting women in Basel Jakob developed a second tour running along the West Plateau and centred on Basel’s biggest and most prestigious remaining city gate the Spalentor and – of course – including interesting facts and stories about ladies in Basel’s history.

Mills Basel / JAMIX International Communication Services ‘St. Alban Valley’
The domain of the first (Benedictine) monastery in Basel, this area saw Basel’s first Roman port and later in the late middle ages a thriving industry, including paper-making based on a cluster of ingeniously constructed water-driven mills.

Lesser Basel / JAMIX International Communication Services ‘Lesser Basel’
A planned bridge-head settlement constructed after the Basel bridge was built after 1225 this part of Basel North of the Rhine has kept much of its medieval character and has become the nucleus of an interesting, lively and multi-cultured part of the modern city.

I would be delighted to take you along on the one or other of my Walks. At CHF 200 for a 90 minute tour with up to 15 participants the price is fair and I am flexible. To book a tour please go to Contact .

All these Walks are on foot, so you have to be reasonably fit.
You undertake them on your own responsibility, any liability is rejected.


As you can see on the fotos taken since I started in 2012 the participants of every age and in every season and weather seem quite satisfied and happy at the end of their tours – and Jakob too.
