Merian Park (Brüglingen Botanical Gardens)

In 1980 Basel hosted a garden show with the not very imaginative title of Green 80. This name stuck in the public's imagination and was also applied to the botanical gardens. The original name comes from a homestead, the remains of which are still visible. The small nearby castle, which served as Christoph Merian's summer residence, is now a cafe. The huge area of the park is ideal for sports, and kids love the enormous dinosaur statue (affectionately known as Dino), who quietly lets everything pass over him.

Tinguely Brunnen

One of the most well-known works of Jean Tinguely is this fountain, which he called 'Composition of the Six Elements'. The avant-garde artist and husband of the sculptress Niki de Saint Phalle became famous through his machine sculptures. These consist not only of pieces of plastic and scrap welded and screwed together, but they also move and make noise. In the fountain project, Tinguely gained one more element, namely water.

Museum Tinguely

Who knows if Jean Tinguely would have believed, had you told him that his creations would once be housed in such noble rooms? The museum building was opened by Mario Botta in 1996 and is sponsored by the local chemical company, Hoffman La Roche. Even the garden of the tower houses works of Tinguely in the shape of a fountain. A bigger version can be found on the Theaterplatz. Tinguely loved to make things, and the museum is full of his moving machine sculptures and sculptures that you can sometimes walkthrough. Children and adults alike love this museum and various exhibitions which highlight works by other artists similar to Tinguely complement the permanent exhibits.
