St. Peter's Square

St. Peter's Square or Peterplatz is famous area that currently plays host to many markets; periodically or weekly. The site has a rich history first serving as a playground, then being used my the military, and then providing space for socio-cultural activities like games and competitions. Over a period of time old buildings were demolished and newer and finer structures constructed around the area which enhances the popularity of the place. Petersplatz is now known more for the markets that take place within it rather than the beautiful structures.

Basel Market

The Basler Market along the Marktplatz is open 6 days a week and a great place to spend a day if you would like to sample some authentic Swiss fare like croissants, steaming hot chocolate, roast chicken and of course red wine. The vendors bring out all they have for sale: clothes, boots, souvenirs, frangipaani, scented flowers, marinated olives, blue cheese, honey, fresh organic produce and even home ware. Even if you don't want to pick up anything, come here for the sheer experience as the atmosphere is matchless and truly local!
