A breathtaking 360-degree panorama: visitors enjoy a bird’s-eye view of Basel on a guided tour through the Roche Tower.
With buildings by superstar international architects from Frank Gehry and Renzo Piano to David Chipperfield, Basel is unequivocally Switzerland’s capital of modern architecture. Herzog & de Meuron are the local heroes: Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron were both born in Basel, and have played a key role in shaping Switzerland’s architectural landscape. Their latest work in the city is the Roche Tower: Switzerland’s tallest building by far at 178 metres. The structure recently started offering guided tours to visitors.
